I'd like be able to send regular messages to a group of students, how do I do this?

 

Question - I'd like be able to send messages to a group of students, how do I do this?

Answer - Head to Reporting>Data Digger. You may be able to set up a Dynamic Group by selecting a cohort of students in the dropdown menu (e.g. SEN or Pupil Premium), a number will appear in the blue circle, click on this to give this group a name. Alternatively if it is a list of unconnected students by cohort, click on Manage Static Groups (at the bottom of the page). Select Add New and give this group a name. You can then add individual student names to this group. You now need to convert this Static Group into a Dynamic Group in order to send messages via Comms. On the Data Digger front page, select Static Group from the dropdown next to number 1, and a box will appear to select the static group you've just set up. A number will appear in the blue circle (all the students in this group), click on this and give it a name - it will now be a Dynamic Group which will appear in Admin>Comms. 

Alternatively if it is a small group of students you can set up the group in the Comms area (click this link): How can I create a group in Comms for Students I send regular emails to
