  1. Sign in multiple students Tardy with printing

    The ability to sign in multiple students just like student sign out. Locate the students name and add them to a queue, so during busy times there will be a way to print all of them to avoid a long line. Once we assign them a tardy, it would print out all tardy passes at once to hand them out.

  2. Create a Kiosk app for Ipad

    I know raptor does not like the kiosk but it is very useful in many school setting. The iPad offers an inexpensive way to deploy with a kiosk stand. The web version works but an app would be better to control it better. Also a way to print to a networked printer or a connected USB printer. This would also be great in school for multiple entrances such as large private school campuses with Lower School, Middle School, and high school entrances. Can deploy multiple units. Also logo customization would be great.

  3. Allow scanning of foreign countries and International licenses.

    We have parents over 30 different countries. The scanner will not recognize most of their licenses, so we have to enter all the information each time they come in the school. It will save alot of time processing parents through the long lines if the system will also save the data (scanned or mannually entered).

  4. We would like the ability to further customize printed reports.

    We publish reports on a daily basis but would like to edit before we publish. Currently we can highlight and/or add little text blurbs. We would like to have the ability to highlight in more than one color (yellow, pink, orange, etc.), to remove unwanted columns, or to add relative information to the report name or header.

  5. visitor "Acknowledge" button

    We have the visitors flagged in "Red" highlight after 1 hour in the building. It would be nice to "Acknowledge" the highlight to have it highlight again after 1 more hour, and again, and again, till the visitor has left the building.

    Thanks Katrina. The problem we always had was trying to find the best way to do quick find if all Visitors for the district are viewable in the Quick Find. Imagine doing a search for "John " or "Garcia ". You would have to sift through alot of same names to find your return visitor. How do you imagine this feature? What kind of issues are you running into with having each visitor belong to a school?

    Thanks!

  7. Pre Registration of vistors

    Before we switched to Raptor one feature on our old system was the ability for faculty and staff pre register visitors this wa she only useful point if our old system. They would login to the web interface and pre register the visitors. This would show up in securities and devotions screen so they know they are coming. It would help us plan for the days visitors. We would still run then through the system to check for offenders. I realize this would cause the need for all to have a user name and password. But very useful.

  8. HID Reader on Faculty Kiosk

    It would be nice to allow us to place a USB HiD card reader on the kiosk so teachers could quickly sign in and out. Our teachers do not use there employee ID. All the info is on the ID Card. I.e. Number.

    At this time there the equipment is not capable of scanning a booklet passports.

    You can however scan the passport ID cards and as always we recommend you enter the name, last name, and date of birth, of the visitor manually.

    While entering the information manually does not allow for the visitor to be pulled up in quick find at a later time, it does provide an offender check. If you wish to have pictures printed on the badges for the visitors that you must manually enter we do provide a camera feature. This would allow you to capture the visitor’s picture at the time they enter.

    This camera can be purchased at http://shop.raptortech.com/product.sc?productId=53&categoryId=3

    Thank you for your idea, we appreciate your feedback and suggestions!

  11. I would like to be able to see the grade level on the reports I print.

    As you can tell, I do a lot work with the Temporary ID portion of VSoft. I like that it shows the student's information, but it doesn't display the grade level. That would really help out when I am trying to target a specific grade level.

  12. Automatically sign in the visitors that have been batch printed for an event's designated time

    Batch printed events automatically sign-out at a designated for an event, but not "IN". The start of an event is the crazy time. Taking the unused name badges (no-shows) and deleting them from the visitor list when everything quiets down would really save time and still give us an accurate picture of who's in the building.

    Thank you! I do have a question on how you would handle no shows? How will you know which people showed, and which did not show? We need to find a good way to implement this feature to fit your needs.

  14. Add Destination / Location For volunteers

    When viewing a visitor, you see "NOTES" which shows you "where" the visitor is located on campus. When viewing Volunteer you see Function. This does not show you "Where" the Volunteer is on Campus. Instead of just having Function that says 'Classroom' It would be much more effcient to have "NOTES" there when viewing a Volunteer verses having to go throught the steps to do a Volunteer Report just to show WHERE the Volunteer is located on campus.

  15. Enable faculty sign-out without signing in first (after entering ID)

    While few of our administrators require their all their campus personnel to sign in when they arrive, most want them to sign out if they leave campus during, say, a conference period then sign back in upon their return. This could be easily accommodated on the kiosk by presenting an additional Sign Out button after the person types his/her ID number or scans a bar code. Simply log the transaction as an event rather than to compute duration. As is, our campuses will never use the Faculty module.

    Thanks for the feedback. We are always interested to know how different schools use the Faculty modules. As it stands, you have to sign IN, before you can sign OUT. Using a event SIGN OUT, will mean that all faculty members were present or “assumed to be signed in” at that present time, which may or may not be true. We do understand a need to track Faculty members leaving for off building events.

    We will evaluate your idea to have an event transactions in future releases. If you have any other feedback or ideas on how to properly implement this, let us know! Thanks again!

  16. Show times on theTardy Report

    We need times on the tardy report since we are tracking the students by both time and period

  17. Shortcut to Batch Print Event

    It would be even better if that page allows direct access to the list of events via a dropdown menu or at least a direct link to the page of events. (As it is, one has to go to the Home option at the top and then the "Batch printing" button. If you have to enter 100 or more people, that adds up to a whole bunch of wasted time switching back and forth between pages.)

  18. Vehicle sign in / out

    In our county all students in pre-k are required to be signed in and out each dAy. This is over 300 students at pick up and drop off. We can do it with a mobile device put a RFID reader or scanner would speed up the process. We then could print out or archive the report each day to show student and guardian that picked them up. Also an iPad or android app to make this easier would be great although the web app does work.

    Thanks again for your great suggestion. Can you give us more details about Vehicle Sign In / Out? Are you asking to have a barcode on each vehicle that picks up students? More details are appreciated.

  19. Allow campuses to modify the design of labels - removing certain fields that are good to search on - but not display such as employee #

    We would like to be able to modify the design of the label - or mark certain fields as "no print fields" on the label. We still would like to search by that field - just not search on it.
