Email from Gradebook

In a recent release (back on November 10, 2020), QuickSchools introduced a new feature to allow teachers to email parents and/or students directly from the Gradebook. This is just one of the many ways teachers can engage parents/students (in addition to Mass Messaging, Class Discussions and Homework / Assignments). Notice the new mail icon on the top right corner of the Gradebook:

Clicking on the mail icon will allow you to compose an email message:

Send email to Parents / Students from the QuickSchools Gradebook

Some things to note about this feature:

  • You can send emails to both parents and students
  • The system uses the current user as the sender, but you can change the sender info
  • You can include information from specific columns in your Gradebook. Just check the column names on the right side of the screen.
  • The email template will fill in the auto-generated fields based on the available information (like subject name, student name, sender name, etc). So you can use a single template to send emails to all your parents/students, and each recipient will receive a personalized email based on their information.
  • Email supports attachments

After clicking “Send Email”, you will be asked to confirm the email:

Confirm the email to be sent to Parents / Students from the QuickSchools Gradebook

Here’s an example of a sent email (using the sample data above as an example):
