Groups are intended to be virtual counterparts to physical groups such as clubs, sports, PTA, etc. Groups can be created by Administrators or Owners with customized Permissions.
Following a group means that you will see the content posted from the group within the app and will receive announcement notifications from the group.
Public Groups may consist of school-sanctioned clubs/organizations such as athletic teams, academic clubs, PTA, etc. Anyone can follow (or, unfollow) the available public groups by clicking the + next to Groups from the Feed.
Private Groups may consist of committees, departments, teacher-led study groups, etc. A person with Admin permissions must add/remove you as a member.
Smart builder allows you to create a dynamic group on a whim (Ex. 3rd and 4th Grade Guardians that speak Bulgarian) or CSV allows you to upload your own Group by populating a CSV using Staff and/or Student IDS OR by populating a CSV using Name + Communication. Once a list has been created and saved, you can make it available for the community (See Community Lists within Creating Groups).
- Lists will not show within the left-navigation in the feed.
- Lists do not add members to the district. You must add this list to a recipient group if wanting the recipients to receive the message.
- ID uploads not available for Clever customers.
