Extras
1) Need Password Protection?
  When you purchase DayCare 2005, we will add the password protection unit that allows you to password each financial component, so that only authorized people can access your important information.
2) Staff Time Clock.  MapleSoft now offers a Software Time Clock that can be used for your staff.  This program will work by itself or with DayCare 2005.  It is sold seperately for only $49.00. But is free when you purchase DayCare 2005.   This program allows your staff to enter their staff id number and the person would then click on an "In" or "Out" button.  The time is generated from the computer, so that no one can change their time.  It has a password protected administration component that you can update DayCare 2005 with or export to disk with your staff's time.  Click here for more information.
3) How About Import/Export Capabilities?
  Now an additional free module, which lets you export and import data from DayCare 2005 to another computer via floppy disk, e-mail or to another directory on your hard drive.  You can even export to spreadsheet files, word-processing files and more, so that you can use your data in a different program.  Make your own reports, sort & format data to see information from DayCare 2005 in different ways.  You can even put selective data criteria such as dates and child id numbers, so that the export file will have just the information you need.  Here are some examples that you might want to do.  
    A) Maybe you have more than one daycare facility, but want to run payroll at the main facility for all facilities.  You could export the selected staff time records from all satellite facilities "via floppy disk or e-mail" & then import the staff time records at the main facility where you could then run a payroll for all employees at all facilities.
    B) How about doing work at home?  Maybe you just have one facility, but want to enter data at home & at the daycare facility.  You could use the import export features to transfer data back and forth from each computer.  You can select which files to transfer, so if you wanted to just work on attendance, then you could choose the activity & attendance file.  Or if you wanted to pay bills, then you could choose the bill file.
    C) Maybe you would like to use an Attendance Report in MS Excel.  Just choose the desired file.  Click on the "Special" button & the information will come up on screen.  You can then send it to a file on your hard disk or to a floppy disk, that MS Excel can use.  The same thing works for Lotus 123 or MS Word and other popular file types.
4) Parent/Child Time Clock.  Want the parents to clock their children in and out as they come and go?  When you purchase DayCare 2005, we add an additional Child Time Clock program, that you can setup on a different computer "or the same computer as DayCare 2005".  Real easy to use, the parent or guardian just enters the Child's 5 digit id number & clicks on a "Clock In/Out" button.  That's it.  There's an administration component so that you can update DayCare 2005 directly or send the data to a floppy disk, that you can then import to DayCare 2005 "if DayCare 2005 is on a different computer".  We recommend that you clock in and out your children in DayCare 2005, so that you have the needed control.  If you decide to use this component, we suggest having your teachers or childcare workers, clock the children in and out.
