This article will remove how to add parents to your organization in Motivity to allow them to see their child's data, notes, and even collect data.
You can invite parents to set up a Motivity account and assign them a parent role, just as you would your staff members.
You will need to create a parent role and assign permissions. Here is an article on how to create roles and set permissions. Make sure to only allow parents to collect view or collect data for learners they are assigned to so they can't see other learner data.
Below are the recommended parent permissions (if you would like parents to collect data).
You will then assign the parent/ caregiver to the learner's team. See this article covering how to assign members to teams: Assigning learners to teams
Parent Data Collection
If you would like parents to collect data, follow these steps:
1. Create the program for parents to use.
2. We suggest you use a label for Parents.
3. While setting up the targets and phases, set the session type for each phase and target to "Parent #daily #playlist". This will create a specific type of session for parents.
Note: The #playlist option will allow only parents (or other specifically permitted in the roles/permissions) to see this target and the #daily option will allow the parent to take data throughout the day without having to start a session, so that they don't need to start a session to access the data collection interface.
PLEASE NOTE: You must copy the name of the session type permitted in roles exactly into the Session Type (in the program editor) for this option to work properly.
You can send the parents a direct link (through text or email) to the daily session data page so they can click on the link and go straight to the data collection page and won't need to navigate Motivity.
Here is a 20-minute training course for parent onboarding and below is a video specifically for parents collecting data.
