About the new Operoo Central Mobile App

 We want to make sure that you and your parent community get to know and love the new Operoo-branded mobile app as much as we do. With the ability to receive push notificaitons straight to your phone, faster performance, and a badge counter that makes it easy to know when to take action, the new app is the quickest and easiest way for users to access Operoo. The Operoo Mobile App is available for immediate download from the Apple App Store for iOS devices and Google Play Store for Android devices.

Getting your staff and parents onboard the new app

Whilst the existing CareMonkey Mobile App will continue to work, it’s no longer available for download and won’t receive new feature updates or proactive support moving forward. So, now’s a great time to get your school community downloading and using the Operoo Mobile App.
To help, we’ve created a new Parent eForm template, named ‘New Operoo Central App for Parents / Guardians’, which you can access via your Operoo Best Practice Parent eForm Templates.
We strongly encourage you to distribute this template as soon as possible.
Below, you’ll also find a 70-second introduction video to help you get acquainted with the Operoo Mobile App.

About Operoo News

We’re delighted to introduce Operoo News: A digital news feed that you can use to distribute real-time updates to any group in Operoo, received in each recipient’s preferred language. Push notifications in the new Operoo-branded mobile app instantly alert parents to news as it happens. Operoo News is a powerful new solution to enhance your parent engagement, staff and student communications strategies. Delivering targeted messages and announcements to specific groups as needed, Operoo News is the perfect compliment to, or replacement for, lengthy and static school newsletters.
