Accessibility Updates

Procare has been collaborating with accessibility expert BlindIt to obtain VPAT certification for Procare Schoolcare Works. We believe that everyone should benefit from our platforms' functionalities, regardless of their unique needs or abilities. This partnership underscores our commitment to making our software accessible to all users.

Our team has been diligently enhancing the accessibility features to ensure they meet the criteria outlined in WCAG 2.1 AA guidelines. This includes improvements in navigation, keyboard accessibility, screen reader compatibility and more.

Mandated 2-Step Verification

Business and center level admins have the ability to require 2-Step Verification for all staff using the Provider Portal, all families using the Connect Portal, or both. If a business level requires 2-Step Verification for staff and/or families, then it will be required at all center levels. If it is not required at the business level, then each center can choose to require 2-Step Verification.

If 2-Step Verification is required for staff and/or families, they will have 3 opportunities to set up at least one verified method when they log in. They can choose to ignore this message and continue to use the software, but after the third time, they will be required to set up at least one verified method or they will be forced to log out. Staff with the correct permissions can reset 2-Step Verification for staff and/or parents.

See: 2-Step Verification Overview under the Requiring 2-Step Verification section.


Pre-Bill (Defined) Report

Created a Pre-Bill (Defined) report to allow Defined Billing customers to review billing information before the next billing cycle. Program/Room Assignment rates, overrides and discounts will be included in the calculation to determine what the parent will owe.


Auto-Expiring Passwords

New settings have been added under the Setup > System Config > Extended Configuration screen for auto-expiring passwords. These settings allow admins to determine if and when Provider and Parent portal user passwords should expire.
