The WebSMS service is used for sending messages to staff or parents from your web browser on your desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile. Login to WebSMS to send messages and read your received messages.
There are a number of ways to send messages:
- type the mobile number
- select contact from the phonebook
- select distribution list of contacts
The phonebook and distribution lists can be uploaded to WebSMS in CSV format. This allows contact information to be exported from an external system (e.g. MIS or database) and imported into WebSMS. Up-to-date parent and staff contact details can therefore be kept in WebSMS for when they are required.
Roll Call - The ability to perform a "roll call" of people on your distribution list can be enabled on your account. This allows you to check on the wellbeing of everyone and get a report on their status.
