Upload From Your Mobile Phone

Parents can now upload their documents directly to the website from their mobile devices, no app needed! Uploading is accessible directly from the web-browser. Say goodbye to those annoying “Please download the App from the App Store” notifications. Uploading a photo of your form is now so simple! We’ve broken it down into four easy steps:

1) Open the webpage

2) Snap a photo of your document

3) Upload it

4) Save it


Fill Out Forms Online

Tired of forms that you have to download, print, sign, scan, upload, and then wait for a response? Yeah, us too. With Magnus Health’s newly enhanced online forms feature, the process of filling out forms has been cut in half and is more streamlined than ever. Now, schools have the option to have users complete questions and provide information right from their computers via drop down menus, text boxes, radio buttons and more. This will reduce the amount of printing forms and wasting paper. Now the only time you need to print a form is if a physician’s signature is required.
