Take charge of how you manage communication with advanced messaging on Remind

How-to and Tips

If you had to guess, how many messages do you and your staff send to parents and students in a typical school year? Hundreds? Maybe thousands?

As an administrator, you’re probably responsible for all kinds of regular (and important) communication in your school or district. But with messages that range from attendance notifications to graduation announcements, that communication can add up quickly and become almost impossible to manage, much less measure and improve.

Now, with Remind’s new premium messaging features, you can reach groups of parents and students with timely, relevant messages that actually makes a difference. By integrating data from your organization’s student information system (SIS), you can send actionable, customized messages to specific people across your community—making communication as easy for you as it is for your teachers.

Reach exactly who you need to in your community

Advanced messaging makes it simple to send a message based on student number or role. Just upload a CSV to Remind to reach specific groups of parents and students for one-time updates about topics like graduation requirements or immunization forms.

Automate notifications to save you time

Use Remind to automate all the messages you send regularly to students and parents, whether that includes daily attendance notifications, weekly lunch money balance updates, monthly progress updates, or quarterly report cards. By transferring data from your SIS using secure transfer file protocol (SFTP), you can manage all this communication without adding more work for you and your staff.

Remind’s premium messaging features give you a fast, easy way to control all the communication you manage across your organization. And the best part? These notifications all go right to the phones of your students and parents—just like the messages they already see and read.

Advanced messaging is now available via Remind Hub. If your organization has already purchased Remind, get in touch with your customer success manager or support representative for more details.
