New SMS feature in HR Manager

New SMS feature in HR Manager

Previously, it has been possible to configure an SMS communication to Students and/or their Contacts (e.g. Parents) using the SMS Wizard in Pupil Manager, however this functionality has not been available for Staff in the Human Resources Manager.

We have now developed and released a feature within HR Manager to allow authorised users to send group SMS messages to Staff and/or Staff Contacts, including the ability to:

  • Choose the relation types to be included
  • Filter by the type of address
  • Review the list of recipients

By default, this feature is enabled for all schools, but is only available to schools using the new SMS Gateway v2.0.

For more information, including how to configure this feature, take a look at our iCommunity post.
