Step-by-Step Instructions

Instant New Family Member Account Notification

Some schools like to manually distribute user credentials (system login information) to the family members of students rather than allowing the system to automatically send emails with the information as soon as the family member is added to the system.

To enable or disable family member new account notifications:

1. Log into SchoolFront as an Administrator user.

2. In the left navigation bar, place your mouse on Feature Administration, then Feature Administration page will appear.

3. In the Misc section, click Family Communication Settings.

4. To allow instant family login information emails, check the checkbox. To disallow, ensure the checkbox is unchecked.

5. To adjust the content of the instant email notification, edit the text in the WYSIWYG rich text editor.

6. Click the Save button.

Instant Attendance Notifications for Parents

Some schools do not like to share attendance information instantly with parents. For example a boarding school may not wish to have parents instantly emailed when a child is late or absent from a class. Such a notification could spur undo panic in a parent who has entrusted their child to the school's care 24 hours a day.

To enable or disable attendance notifications:

1. Log into SchoolFront as an Administrator user.

2. In the left navigation bar, place your mouse on Feature Administration, then Feature Administration page will appear.

3. In the Misc section, click Family Communication Settings.

4. To allow instant attendance emails, check the checkbox. To disallow, ensure the checkbox is unchecked.

Click the Save button.
