Exciting New Features on the Way!

The Minute Menu CX Team is happy to share some exciting news! We will soon launch a brand new set of features to help sponsors manage their support staff’s access to Minute Menu CX. These features allow centers to have more than one set of login credentials. Centers can now have a center administrator with a higher level of permissions than other users. Centers can also assign users to other roles, each of which has its own set of permissions.

Minute Menu CX customers have asked for features like these, and we have listened! We are actively building the solution right now.

Our development team expects to roll out these new features during the Summer of 2014. Keep your eye on this blog for more information. We will post screen captures and notes to help prepare you to hit the ground running once these exciting new features arrive.

No Risk from Using WebKids in Internet Explorer

Our support team has received calls about a reported “flaw” in Internet Explorer versions 6 through 11 that might make users vulnerable to attack by hackers. There is no risk from this flaw in using our WebKids application or from visiting any of our websites–www.minutemenu.com, training.minutemenu.com, or childcareinfo.com.  We have no feedback on your risk when visiting other sites using Internet Explorer, and encourage you to make any adjustments you feel necessary to protect your personal and business information.

According to an article posted online by The Washington Post, a user must visit a website that uses Flash technology and is controlled by a hacker or other entity that desires to gain unauthorized access to your computer. WebKids does not link to outside pages and does not use Flash technology, which limits your risk when using our products. More details about the security risk issue, and Microsoft’s response, can be found in the Washington Post article.

If you have questions, please contact our support team – we are happy to help!

UPDATE: The Washington Post is now reporting that Microsoft has released a security update for Internet Explorer that fixes this bug.  It will also be releasing an update for Windows XP users, but the article does not provide information on when that will occur.  Per the article, users who have Automatic Updates turned on will automatically receive the fix.  Otherwise, users will remain vulnerable until they update Internet Explorer.
