How do I use Reporting on Thumsters?

Reporting was an important element for us when building Thumsters, we didn't just want the app to be reactionary, (display behaviour = get a thumb), we wanted to provide a tool that was PROactive in our parenting. A way to check for behavior patterns, work on the negatives as a family, offer support when needed, and celebrate the wins when they come along too. Checking out the detailed reports in particular gives you a great overview of your child's behaviour, allowing you to explore (often together) ways to make better behavior choices in your home. For example, you might see that Joel, 7, is getting a lot of thumbs down after school. Perhaps consider, having not eaten much since lunch his blood sugars are low leading to irritability or impatience. A great family strategy could be to pack a healthy snack to give him straight after school in the car on the way home.
Another example could be you see a lot of thumbs down in the morning while getting ready for school..... perhaps make sure, with your help, he finds and lays out his uniform and shoes the night BEFORE, ready for the next day so there's no rush trying to find socks! Popping out their bowl of cereal (covered) the night before ready to go is another option. This teaches great organisational and life skills, as well as confidence and a sense of achievement as he learns to take responsibility for problem solving and getting himself ready. Setting strategies as a family are all part of that CONNECTION and COMMUNICATION we like to talk about so often here at Thumsters, and that's where the Reporting feature shines.

There are two reports screens within Thumsters, one is included in all accounts, and one is a Pro Subcription feature (see here for 'why' we charge for upgraded features).

Basic version reporting

The home screen for reports is available for both free accounts and premium accounts. It is the first screen you will see when you push the reports button at the bottom of your Thumsters screen. In your child's report you will see Today: This indicates what thumbs up and down have been awarded today (midnight to midnight). 7 Days: This indicates thumbs that have been awarded throughout the past week.

Pro Subscription Reporting

If you have a Pro Subscription, the first screen you see will be as above. If you click on a child, you will be taken to a more in depth reporting screen. This provides various reports for your kids, such as thumb progress, times of day thumbs up or down are given, and the types of up and down thumbs given.

There is a date filter at the top of the detailed reports screen allowing you to filter by a day, a week, a month, a year.
