I like the website - but it would help if both parents could set up accounts and both have access to put in information about the children. Right now we are looking at setting up one account and sharing the user name and password and we thought we’d share our answer with
Since our update in November, TotSpot child profiles can have multiple managers. That means, if you want to add your husband or wife (or grandma, grandpa, a godparent or whoever) to be able to have the total ability to update your chid’s profile, you can!
Here are the quick and easy steps to add a manager:
1) Make sure that the person who you want to make a manager already has a TotSpot account of their own and has connected with as a ‘friend’ with your child.
2) Next, login to your account, and go to the main ‘Friends’ tab (see image below).
3) Pick your child’s tab, and then use the dropdown over the person you want to make a manager to change the setting.
One of the key new aspects of our November update to the site was the introduction of the notion of ‘Parent Profiles’ on TotSpot. We did a lot of backend rejiggering to enable parents to have an identity on the site alongside their children, which opens the door to a whole new set of functionality (like adding managers) and community features (like our forthcoming Groups).
As always, never hesitate to drop us a line; you’ll get our attention most quickly through our dedicated support site on Get Satisfcation. You may find out that we already have exactly what you’re looking for.
