Once you have added a child's profile to Storypark, you can invite up to two family members (usually parents / guardians) of the child. Family members invited by an educator will become administrators of the child’s profile. Once a family member has accepted your invite and signed up, they will be able to invite further family members.
In this guide, learn about:
- the different ways to invite parents
There are a few ways to invite parents:
Click the 'Invite' button in the top right corner, then select 'Invite parents'
Within a Service or Room area, from the 'Children' tab
Go to your early learning service’s ‘Children’ page, find the child you’re looking for and click the ‘Invite parents’ button:
On the form, ensure the 'Parents' tab is selected at the top of the box, and then complete the form making sure that the correct child is selected:
You have the option to add a custom message that will be included when the invitation email is sent. Invitations with custom messages add a personal touch and are more likely to be noticed in the recipients’ inboxes. Note, if you’ve entered two email addresses, both parents will receive the same custom message.
Inviting parents of multiple children at once
Go to your 'Children' page and at the top, click the 'Yet to invite' link:
In the dropdown form, you can enter multiple parent's email addresses and an optional message for each, then click 'Invite parents':
Note: If you chose to use the form above, only one parent/guardian can be invited to each child's profile. If you need to invite two parents/guardians, we recommend sending invites for each child separately.
How many people can educators invite to a child's profile?
Once you have added a child's profile to Storypark, you can invite up to two family members (usually parents / guardians) of the child.
If you only invite one person to a child's profile, then you won't get the option to go back later and invite a second. For this reason we highly recommend inviting both parents at the same time.
Why is a child's name not coming up in the drop-down box on the invite?
The drop-down menu can only display children who haven't had any invites sent for their profile yet. For security reasons, if one parent is already connected to the child's profile, they need to invite any other family members from their login.
What happens when you click ‘Invite’?
See this article to learn what a parent sees when they receive their invitation.
Once the parent has signed up and agreed to the consent form, you'll be notified by email. The parent can then access their child's stories, leave comments, create their own stories and invite family members.
What happens if a parent does not accept the consent form?
This article explains what happens if a parent doesn't accept the consent form.
