App Broadcast

Use the iParent App Broadcast feature to send emails directly to Parent Portal users who haven’t yet installed the App, ensuring they’re aware that it’s available and highlighting how it will be useful for them. You can even include handy installation instructions.

I’m also a parent here, so I get to experience the Parent Portal and iParent App from both perspectives, and I love how slick and easy they are to use – so much so that we’re planning on using these channels to communicate with parents even more in the future.
