Districts that purchase the Frontline Insights Platform also gain access to the new Frontline Education mobile app! The initial in-app features focus on absence management functionality, but those with employee directory access and/or time and attendance can also expect future additions.
The user-friendly app now provides increased accessibility to key features such as the Daily Report and multiple absence-tracking tools!
You must first ensure you have the proper qualifications to access the app.
Your district must utilize Frontline's Insights Platform and use the Frontline absence management feature. You must also already have a Frontline ID account with a single username and password.
If you meet these requirements, access the app store and download the Frontline Education mobile app. The district provides its employees with a unique 4 digit access key that you must then enter into the app.
Once you enter the access key, proceed to the Sign In page and enter your Frontline ID. Then, click Sign In.
The homepage displays pending approvals, unfilled absences, and a collective count of filled absences for the current and/or upcoming day.
You can select a particular timeframe (Yesterday, Today, and/or Tomorrow) to review your district's absence requirements which the system identifies via a purple graph at the top of the page.
You can also select Approvals (to review absences pending approval), Absences Today (to identify which of your district absences are filled, unfilled, and do not require substitutes), or Contacts (to email or call an individual from your contacts list).
The "Menu" option opens a side navigation bar where you can access current tools and settings.
Click Directory to view your contact list. You can select an individual and review his/her email and/or contact details.
Select Approvals in the side navigation to review absences pending approval.
You can then select an individual from the list to approve or deny a request.
Select Absences from the side navigation to identify which of your absences are filled, unfilled, and/or do not require a substitute. You can select a specific individual from the list to review individual details.
