Activating Existing Accounts

Over time, QikKids builds up a history of the families that have attended your service (and other services in your database if you are using a multi-centre version of QikKids). When a family leaves (and they are removed from the Accounts Screen), the system "unlinks" their account from your centre, but their details remain in the database. Rather than creating a new account from scratch, it's necessary to first search and see if a family account is already in the system. If found, click Activate to reactivate the family's account.

This is especially important in multi-centre databases where families can attend more than one centre. Correct CCB calculations require that the system take into account sibling attendances and absences across multiple centres. To do this a single family account should be linked to all the centres they currently use.
