Sticky Notes for Sign Out

ARTICLE: Sticky Notes for Sign Out

Sticky Notes is a notification system that allows you to prevent sign out until the notes are acknowledged by students or staff during the sign out procedure.

They provide you with an important support function for implementing due diligence and appropriate Duty of Care procedures at the point of departure from your boarding house or school campus.

As students go to sign out from campus, Sticky Notes will prevent sign out until they are acknowledged by the student or staff member signing out.

Acknowledgement of your sticky note will adhere to the sign our rules that you have configured for your locations and leave types.

When Sticky Notes are acknowledged, Reach will capture the audit record for reference in case of any incident and a need to refer back to the sign out procedure.
