Already Expensing Your Smartphone? Make It a Wifi Hotspot for a Better hx2go Experience

You’ve got a new-ish smartphone with a data plan, but you’re doing hx2go reviews in offline mode?  Why not use your smartphone’s hotspot feature to connect your tablet or laptop and get those reviews uploaded immediately?

Don’t get me wrong.  Hx2go was designed to allow you to use it without an Internet connection in the field, but if you can stay connected, there are benefits.

  • Upload the review on-site. The provider gets the emailed link to the review within minutes, sometimes before you leave.
  • The review is safe on our servers—no worrying about losing your device or technical problems later when you try to upload.
  • You can easily download backup providers if the provider you tried to visit is unexpectedly closed.
  • The typical hx2go review is about 35kb in size. That’s about 25 reviews per 1MB of data, or 2500 reviews to make up 1GB.  Chances are, you’ll hardly notice the change in data use.

Shortcut for Recording Meal Counts in cx2go

Are you looking to make data entry as quick and easy as possible for your centers?  Here’s an idea:  introduce them to cx2go and show them this quick-tip for data entry!

On the Record Meals screen, the center can record meal counts for multiple children at once, instead of having to select attendance for each individual child.

Here’s how:

  1. Access the Record Meals screen and select a meal.
  2. Click the Edit button at the top right of screen.
  3. Select each child who attended the meal.  Note: To select a large number of children, use the Select All button and then deselect those who did not attend the meal.
  4. Click the Edit Selected Children button at the bottom.
  5. Select the meal serving that is being recorded.
  6. If applicable, use the Sick option to note that school-aged children were in attendance at the center because of an illness.
  7. Use the School-Out option to note that a school-aged child was in attendance at the center because of a school holiday or if school is not in session.
  8. Click the Apply button and all selected options will be added to the selected children.
  9. Always remember to SAVE your work!
