Using Employee Mobile Features


Districts that purchase the Frontline Insights Platform also gain access to the Frontline Education mobile app! The user-friendly app provides increased accessibility to key features such as absence creation, Leave Balance recognition, and multiple absence tracking tools.


Getting Started

In preparation, please ensure you meet the following qualifications prior to downloading the app:

  • Your district must utilize Frontline's Insights Platform and use the Frontline Absence Management feature.
  • You must already have a Frontline ID account with a single username and password.

If you meet these qualifications, access the app store on your mobile device and download the Frontline Education app. Once the download is complete, you will click Get Started to proceed to a sign in page.


On the Sign In page, proceed to enter your Frontline ID and click Sign In.

Key Features

The homepage displays information applicable to your permission setup. Potential in-app features include current absence or leave balance details (if enabled), clock-in/out functionality, timesheet details, and the option to schedule an absence.


Take note, you can also use the mobile app to electronically check in prior to attending a Professional Development event. (You will have previously registered for this event through Professional Learning Management.)
