Facts about our apps

November 06, 2014

To date, more than 2,700 members have downloaded our free mobile apps - Worklog and Classtime - which are available for Android and IOS devices through Google Play and the Apple App Store.

Here's what you need to know to see if they are right for you.

Classtime

What it is

A mobile app for occasional teachers to keep track of their work schedule.

How it works

Classtime easily allows you to enter the date and school of each of your assignments. For each teaching assignment you enter, there is a box that can be checked-off to track whether or not you've been paid for that assignment.

Why it will help

Classtime is an app tailored towards helping you keep track of your work schedule.  It will even store the names of the schools you work at and the teachers you replace each day, so you can easily find them when making a new entry.

What members say  

"Teachers are more connected than ever before, so an app like Classtime makes what is sometimes a tedious task, simple and accessible. In fact, I caught an assignment <by using Classtime> that I wasn't yet paid for. And when I called the school board to inquire, I had all the details right on the app, so I was easily able to provide all the information to the representative." - Nina Sharma, active teacher

How to get it

The free app is available for Android and iOS devices through Google Play and theApple App Store.

Worklog

What it is

A mobile app for re-employed pensioners to keep track of their re-employment days.

How it works

Simply record the days you work right in the app. It will automatically keep track of your days and indicate when you are getting close to the 50-day re-employment limit.

Why it will help

Under current re-employment rules, the onus is on you (the pensioner) to keep track of the number of days you work, which can be up to 50 days per school year. If you exceed the 50-day limit and continue to work in education the following month, you're required to call us so that we can suspend your pension until you're finished working. Worklog will help you keep track of the days you work to avoid pension suspension. In fact, the calendar within the app is colour coded – green means you can keep working, yellow means you are getting close to your re-employment limit, and red reminds you to stop working to avoid pension suspension.

What members say

"I keep track of my re-employment days on an Excel document that I created on my computer, but I use Worklog as a reinforcement tool to make sure the two systems coincide. The app is handy because it is right on my phone. It is very convenient, not to mention clear and easy to use." - Domenic DiGiacomo, retired teacher

The free app is available for Android and iOS devices through Google Play and theApple App Store.
