I'd like be able to send regular Comms messages to a group of students (e.g. FSM), how do I do this?

 

You can send Comms messages to Dynamic Groups set up in Data Digger on ScholarPack.

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 next to the number 1 on the right side (e.g. Eligible for Free Meals). These will be your Free School Meals (FSM) students.

A number will appear in the blue circle, click on this to give this group a name to create the dynamic group.

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. To send Comms messages to this group, you now need to convert this Static Group into a Dynamic Group. 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. 

In the Comms area, on the left side under Dynamic Groups, you will find all your dynamic groups as well as your intervention groups.

Click on the group, then Add all. 

Another way to create the group for Comms, if it is a small group of students you can set up the group in the Comms area by individually selecting their names from the student search box and adding them one at a time to the contacts table (click this link): How can I create a group in Comms for Students I send regular emails to
