Mass Notifications

  1. Mass Flagged Number Clear

    It would be great if we had the ability to do a mass clearing of flagged (bad) numbers that are put on the 30 day hold before trying to send a message again, rather than going into each account and clearing the flag manually.

  2. Reports - The ability to Create Report for a User not Organization/School

    I would like to run a message tracking report for a user not just for organizations/schools. Can this be added in future releases?

  3. Please add the language option of Chuuk/Chuukese for custom daily attendance messages

    We have a number of families who speak Chuukese. We would like to send out customized daily attendance emails to those families, but cannot because Chuuk/Chuukese is not in the list of pull-down options. We can translate the message ourselves.

  4. District Admin-Subscribe to Site Emergency Calls from District Level

    Set up our District Upper Management to get any "Emergency" calls (or any other site notifications) that any of our school sites make without having to create multiple accounts for that person at each site. Having the ability to have just one account that can have access to all sites.

  5. See message recipients by language

    I would like to be able to see recipients by language in the "Choose" box so that I can remove specific recipients, just as I can when selecting recipients by a group.

    Some of our families who speak English as a second language do not want to receive messages in those languages, even though that's how it is designated in our Student Information System/Blackboard. We would like to be able to click on the language name and view the list of recipients who would receive the language in that message and be able to remove them by clicking on the…

  7. Add Sender information to Message Tracking overview list

    When a message tracking report is requested, it would be helpful to have the sender name listed. Sometimes we have similar messages going out from multiple people from the same school. We have to open each message and then click on Details to find out who the sender was.

  8. Upload a list to Send messages using Parent ID

    When exporting a list from the Bad phone/email report, it shows the ID of the ROLE IE: 417115 for parent Que, Susie.
    It would be great to be able to upload a list using the parent id, to contact that parent via email asking them for their new phone ## that was flagged as invalid, or texting/calling that same parent saying that their email address was invalid.
    As of right now, you can only choose 'student', & then hit the advanced tab & deliver to parents of students....
    bad thing about that is, only ONE parents information is bad. We…

  9. Teacher Communications and Confidentiality

    Right now, any teacher at a campus can go into their account and go to, "Other", and they can select to be cc'd on EVERYTHING that goes out at that campus. This creates a HUGE violation of confidentiality and violates FERPA laws. What one teacher sends out to and receives from a parent should not be available to other teachers in the building.Administrators and principals should be able to monitor their staff, but not teachers monitoring other teachers. We actually had a teacher check those not understanding and had 3 pages of messages on students not associated with her at…

  10. Work on your email templates

    Within email you have a handful of templates for newsletters, etc. They are not the most user friendly to customize. Once a user has gone to the trouble of customizing an email, provide them with a way to save it as a template. Additionally, create the functionality to revert sent messages into draft form so they can be used as a form of template- i.e. if someone else in my organization sent something, I can take it and reopen it as a draft in my email, and use all their same formatting/color choices, etc.

  13. District Admin Account Receive Copies

    I would like to see a way to set our District Admin account to receive copies of every message sent out through our Blackboard system. This would be an excellent additional backup and would also provide another way to search for past messages sent.

  15. Ability to see history/proof that new login information has been generated and sent.

    Right now, under contacts, you can see any message that goes to a user besides new login information that is generated. I understand that it is because all of those messages are able to be opened and tracked at a later date, but it would be nice to be able to see proof that a message actually was sent, and delivered to the end user, without the need to actually view what was sent.

  16. Widget Website code does not show schools in the category "other" as selectable

    We currently have 4 schools that do not fit into the 3 categories of schools shown by the code insert to allow community members to sign up to receive messages. If your school is not listed under one of these three categories (High school, Middle School/Jr. High, or Elementary School) it will not show up as an option.

    We currently have 2 early childhood centers, A Special Education School, and a K-8 school that don't fit or work under those categories. These schools are marked as "other" under Organization Configuration. This code does not show schools in the other category.

  17. Add the Notification Title to the Contacts Report

    When data is exported from the "Contacts" tab for a user, the message field is missing. Since this states what the message was, it's important that this is available to us when we download the report. Currently the Recipient Name, Status, Date/Time, Destination and Sender are available. We also need to know if this was an attendance notification, cafeteria balance, PTA meeting message, etc.

  18. Display Student ID# in Select Recipients "from a list" view

    Display Student ID# in Select Recipients "from a list" view. Currently, when you choose a student folder within a school a list of the students is displayed. This lists students as lastname, firstname. If there are multiple students with the same name, Joe Smith or Jose Hernandez, then you display 5 Joe Smiths and 7 Jose Hernandez.

    When using this method to select specific students for a message or to create a group, there is no way to accurately determine which student is which.

  19. Groups - Add "Date Last Used" as a field.

    Add a field (column) to the Groups page that displays the "date last used" for that specific group.

    This would be helpful when reviewing groups for removal.

  20. Message Automatically Set to Send Now Change

    In Connect 5, the user would have to set the date/time when they wanted the message to go out before sending it, but in the new system, it automatically set to go "Now". I know that it's a training issue, and probably created to eliminate that step, but if a user accidentally forgets to schedule the time, rather than "Now", then it already goes and the user usually doesn't have time to try and cancel it. Forcing the user to choose a time gives it a checks and balance when creating a message.
