Messaging Improvements

We’ve made some minor improvements to the Messaging module (previously Parent Messaging) for larger schools that have multiple sections for a single course. When selecting a subject/course from the dropdown, we now display the Subject Abbreviation, so you can easily differentiate between sections with the same subject name:

Subject Listing in Parent Messaging now includes the Subject Abbreviation / Code

Also, for schools that rely on the student’s nickname, the Student dropdown now includes the Nickname:

Student Dropdown now includes the student’s Nickname in parentheses

Private Messaging Improvements

As with the Parent Messaging improvements, we’ve also included the students nickname in the dropdown for students:

Student Dropdown in Private Messaging includes the Nickname in parentheses

Rename “Allocate” to “Apply”

Finally a quick mention about renaming the term “Allocate”, which will be used exclusively when referring to the financial process of allocating a payment to a charge/invoice. As such, when creating a payment/charge that applies to multiple students within a family, we’ll be using the “Apply” instead:

Payment can be Applied to multiple students within Family Billing

Note that if you’ve enabled payment allocation, this term remains.
