Release Note – Version 1.9.9

Admin Role


  1. Deferred Deposits have been introduced. Deferred Deposit is like a wallet (escrow) balance that allows payers to deposit money in their wallets to use it for fee payments in future. Add money to deposits and use them as and when needed. Two reports are introduced to view the deferred deposit transactions,
  • Deferred Deposit Ledger report – all transactions for the Deferred Deposit wallet are recorded in this report.
  • Deferred Deposit Balance report – deferred balance data is recorded in this report.
  1. Prepaid Hours Packages (PPH) have been introduced. Admin creates PPH Packages as per their requirement and then, parents buy those packages for attendance-based bills. This is a feature for the Drop-in module.
  2. Email Change functionality has been modified. Now, the email change function is role-specific. Admin may change email address of all users of the application. Teachers and parents can edit their email addresses only. If Admin changes their own email address and that email exists in iCare then the admin has to go through a verification process to confirm the change.
