How to use Reminders

Tracking when your children get up, what they eat and when they use the restroom can be stressful, especially if you’re on the go and you don’t have a way to jot down a note. With Birdhouse Reminders, convenience is placed at the forefront, making your day easier & more manageable.

Reminders allows you to keep track of what your child does while on the go by automatically emailing you  to ask what your child has done that you need to keep track of. Once you reply, Birdhouse will take the information you sent and automatically store it inside your child’s Activity feed, so you don't even have to open the app.

Setting up email reminders is very simple and only takes a few minutes. In order to set up email reminders, you must do so from a desktop computer or laptop. Below is a step-by-step guide on how to set up an email reminder:

  1. Log into your Birdhouse account with your email address and password.
  2. Once logged in, click Reminders on the top right corner of the screen. It will have an envelope icon next to it. When you click on Reminders, you will be taken to a new page. On this page is where you will create your Reminders.
  3. Use any of the pre-made reminders shown on the middle of the page by simply clicking the phrase or add your own custom reminder by clicking the “Add reminder” tab. 
When setting up a pre-made reminder, be aware that the reminder will generate at the bottom of the page. In order to change options, you must click on the information displayed below.

When setting up a Reminder, you can choose which child you want this reminder to keep track for, how frequently you would like to receive a reminder and at what time of day, and what the subject line will say in the email sent to you. When you are finished, click “Create reminder”.
Once you have created a Reminder, the following will happen:

At the designated time you set to have an email reminder sent to you, you will receive an email from Chirp Chirp with the subject you wanted it to say. When you reply, the message will send the information that you put in, straight into your child’s Activity feed on your Birdhouse app.

Once you have your email reminder set, you will see how helpful it becomes. Reminders is just one of the many ways in which Birdhouse helps you make your life, as well as your child’s life, easier and more manageable.
