Primary Guardians are now able to have the control to allow their authorize guardians to receive text message notifications when a child is checked in/out. There are three different ways to enable this feature as a guardian and administrators for the organization.

To set up text message preferences for a guardian:

An Admin can do it for a parent via the People tab:

An administrator may also change these settings for a guardian. Locate the guardian in your People tab area. In their Account Details area, hover over the blue box with horizontal lines -> Edit Text Messaging. Here, notification options can be adjusted as necessary.


An administrator can change a guardian’s text message settings by editing Account Details under the People Tab

A parent can adjust text message preferences via our mobile app on their smartphone.

Alternately,  parents can do it themselves via

  1. The guardian needs sign into their KidCheck account, and click the My Account tab
  2. In the Guardian section, locate the  Text Message Notifications drop down menu.
  3. By clicking the check box for the specific child, it will enable notifications (for check in/out) for that guardian.
    1. The on-screen note  will show up in Black if the Authorized Guardian has text message enabled.
    2. The on-screen note will show up in Red if the Authorized Guardian has text message disabled.

Note: A message will appear in red if their text messaging on their account is not enabled.

 If the station is Staff Attended, the guardians can do it themselves:
