Following up with account balances
Go to School > Payments > Accounts > Balances to ask Primary Guardians to top up in bulk using a new Mail Merge SMS. You can also send in-app messages from here too! Not only is this option much cheaper than SMS (they’re free), but you can monitor when the message has been read from Communications > In-App Messages > Sent In-app Messages.
Mark multiple columns in bulk
You can now enter marks for multiple assessments at once - useful for bulk marking Early Learning Goals for EYFS! Go to School > Programmes > Courses to select your class then go to Assessment > Full Marksheet from the left-hand menu. Tick the boxes next to the students to mark, then click the blue pencil icon to select Multiple Column Edit Marks. Choose the Assessment period, Grade point scale, Grade set and Assessments, then select the mark.
EYFS marksheet for a single child
If you’ve set up your EYFS Summative Assessments you can now see the complete view of a single child’s marks in Summative Tracking > Mark Entry > EYFS Marksheet. You can also access this from the left-hand menu of a student’s profile, in Summative Tracking > EYFS Marksheet.
