How to use the app
When the CapePlanner has created an account and created a list of activities, it is time for the CapeUser to log in to the app.
In the app, you have simple overview of your daily schedule and reminders. With a one time login you´ll stay connected to the schedule that a parent, teacher or someone else can create for you during the day. When new activities is added they will automatically appear in the app even if the app isn’t open.
Before you login, you need to choose who your login as in to determine what kind of features you have access too.
As a child, you are a CapeUser. This means you need a CapePlanner to help you with the scheduling. So you can view your activities, get reminded, and use the “Share your mood” feature. The child can also enable “Create activities” in the settings if the child wants to create activities. However, editing and administrating is done by a CapePlanner.
