The PTO Vice President of Technology is responsible for managing various web applications and a limited number of devices.

All three apps are now hosted on one web application reducing the number of logins families need.

Devices

Laptop: The PTO Treasurer is provided a PTO owned laptop. 

PayPal Here: A device to plug into a mobile device/phone to accept payments at PTO events.

Here’s the process we would need to allow any volunteer/PTO board member to take payments:
 
1. Volunteer downloads PayPal Here app: https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/mobile-apps#A11
 
2. I’d provide the login info (which I need to reset).  This would be shared, but all it allows is taking payment, so it’s pretty low risk to share I think.  We can change it every few months if if matters.
 
3. The volunteer needs the swipe.  I have the one swipe now.  There’s a new one for $25 that connects to someone’s phone by Bluetooth that we could order if we need a second.
