Add attachments to all types of messages
In addition to Announcements, you can now add attachments to all types of messages including posts on your Groups.
Class reps have told us that this feature will help them share useful information really easily such as this week's homework sheet!
Announcements look better on mobile
We've taken some time to make your Announcements look all neat and tidy on mobile. So, now you can use the editing tool in Announcements to create a great looking newsletter that parents can read easily on their phone.
Improvements to make it easier to find the info you want
Now you can filter the Activity Feed to see posts from a particular class, group or key announcements. You choose what's important to catch up on.
We've also added notifications to the bottom menu so you can check your notifications quickly.
Find the create button on the top right
Now in the app the create button can always be found on the top right along, with other improvements to give you a better experience navigating the app.
Class list and parent profile pages redesigned
The all new class list brings you to the heart of your school community. Now it's even easier to
- See who’s who at your school
- View parents' profiles for your class and year
- Find families nearby on the parent map
New announcement tools
By popular demand, now when you create an announcement you’ll be able to use our new editing tools to style and add images to it. Try it out!
More intuitive notifications
Now the app will group notifications of likes and comments together when they relate to the same post. It will also automatically mark the notification of a new post as read if you click on the post. A better experience for everyone using the app!
New downloadable QR code flyer
We've also added a new way to sign up parents quickly if it's tricky gathering emails. Download a printable flyer from the invite page on the admin side. Parents simply scan the QR code to be automatically approved.
We still recommend gathering parents' emails if you can because as soon as you invite parents from the admin side by email they'll start getting announcements and event info to their inbox.
Parents are now automatically reminded about events
To help you remember to buy tickets, RSVP and come along to events, we’ve introduced automatic event reminders. You’ll get your first reminder seven days before an event and a second one the day before. PTAs, why not add all your events to Classlist now so parents will get auto reminders for them?
Introducing email verification
We know parents value how Classlist is safe and secure. Now we’ve made the app even more secure. New parents signing up are required to verify their email. It’s easy to do, they just check their inbox for our email and click on the verification link.
A new daily digest
Designed to help you cut through the noise and catch up on what matters most to you, in one hit, on the day it happens.
- it filters so you only see new posts & comments on your groups
- it separates Marketplace posts from other posts
- it introduces new parents joining
So, you don’t have to be constantly switched on to a constant feed of notifications, if you prefer not to be.
We’ve also set up some new, neat ways to automatically optimise your notifications based on how you use Classlist - so you don’t have to.
Online payments have arrived in the Marketplace
Now you can easily buy and sell items on Classlist and also gift a percentage of your proceeds to your school’s PTA fund. We think you’ll like it because you can easily hand over items at the school gate the next day. Ambassadors - get set up to start receiving donations by adding your PTA’s Stripe account on the school profile page!
NEW Stripe payments making it easy for parents to buy tickets to events
- Parents can now buy tickets quicker by just entering their card details directly and with a *much* better experience on mobile.
- Stripe's lower standard fees are more cost effective meaning your PTA doesn't have to worry about applying for charitable status.
- Selling tickets on Classlist saves your PTA lots of time & effort!
