Yes! My School Books can send your students (and/or their parents) email reminders for upcoming events, such as lessons. The feature is enabled on two levels, permission from the student/parent and on a category by category basis.

You can toggle email reminders on and off for individuals in the “Student Details” page:

  1. Log into your My School Books account.
  2. Click “Students” from the main menu.
  3. Click the blue “Zoom” button beside the student you wish to edit.
  4. Below their email address is a checkbox labelled “Send Email Reminders“, deselect this option and click “Save

We then need to turn this on by event category:

  1. Log into your My School Books account.
  2. Click “Calendar” from the main menu on the left.
  3. From the calendar page, click on the “Event Setup” button and select the “Categories” tab.
  4. You should see a list of all your event categories, click the blue “Edit” button beside the category you want to turn email reminders off for.
  5. Uncheck the box labeled “Email Reminders
  6. Click the “Save” button.

That’s it! Emails will now be sent to your students when they have events coming up (such as lessons, events, etc.). You can customize the reminder email using the Email Templates feature.

We recommend configuring My School Books to send email reminders well in advance of your student cancellation policy. This gives your students a fair chance to cancel their lessons and give you notice if they can’t attend. Remember, happy students are happy customers!
