Private Messaging Parent Directory

October 11, 2013

After much demand from schools, Quickschools now have separate access for Parents to send Private Messages to Teachers and to other Parents. This is all controlled via the Features page:

And if you do decide to allow parents to send Private Messages to other parents, this actually becomes our new Parent Directory feature:

Notice that with this new feature, Parents can specify which contact info can be shared with other parents, whether it’s an email address, telephone number of address:

Setting Directory Preferences or Opting In/Out

Individual parents can also opt out completely from the Parent Directory, which will disallow other parents from contacting them via Private Messaging.

We hope this new feature will alleviate the need for a published Parent Directory (which is typically done via Mail Merge), since parents will now have the most accurate contact information available via the Parent Portal. We’ll hopefully have a printable PDF version of the Parent Directory available in a future release. Please let us know what other suggestions you may have for improving the feature.
