Community groups are a great way of supporting and enhancing your parent community. They can be set up by Ambassadors in their admin account.
Common groups include 'Class Reps', 'Christmas Fair Team', 'Dog walkers' - anything that suits your school!
Groups can be used to help organise your PTA, for parents in a specific geographical area, a volunteers group, they can even be based around interest groups within the school.
Groups act like a separate form of 'Classes' or 'Years', allowing members to communicate. Posts from community groups are displayed on the home page on the parent wall like any other posts, but the posts are visible only to members of the group.
- Choose 'Create Group' and add a group name and some members. You can add and remove more people later.
- Parents will see which groups they have been added to on their Home Page. They can leave a community group anytime.
- Posts to a community group will show on a parent's Home page wall and will also be emailed to group members.
Please note that replies to a post are only emailed to the original poster. This keeps email traffic to a minimum. Other parents can visit the group if they want to see replies to a post.
