How do I create Letters?

To send a letter to multiple recipients, go to School > Communications > Letters > New mail merge letter.

From this page, you will be able to compose a letter. You can also use a letter template by clicking the Load letter template button.

Choose the recipients by selecting them from the drop-down list in the To column. You can choose to send the letter to an individual, selected by scrolling through the list or typing the name and selecting the appropriate individual. You can also send to different groups.

In the Combine letters? section, you can choose whether you want to combine emails to one per household or one per recipient and if you want to send an individual email for each student or one regarding all students.

From the next screen, you will have the ability to review your letter. At the bottom of the screen, you can see which users have an address associated with them. Those that do, will have a green tick next to them. The users that don’t will have a red cross next to them.

If you are happy with your letter, scroll to the bottom of the page and press the green Generate button. This will then generate the letter in Arbor and will automatically create a PDF download. The letters can then be printed.
