Let’s bring the idea of mailing lists into the mobile landscape! You can now create subscription categories through the Messages section of your dashboard. These categories will appear in a new menu within the app’s Messages tab, where users can opt out of receiving the types of messages they wish to ignore.

When sending push notifications, you can filter by subscription categories to target the right parent users and avoid bugging the wrongs ones. All push notifications will be viewable in the Messages tab, regardless of users’ specific subscription settings, but only users subscribed to a list will receive alerts from it. Use this feature to notify your School Parents, from PnC notices to Canteen Helpers, will help get the message to the right person.
