This week we introduced our “Season of Giving” campaign for subscribed members. If you’re a subscribed My School Books member, you can use the “Season of Giving” link in your My School Books Home Agenda to tell a friend. If your friend subscribes, you both get a free month! The more you give, the more you get!

Other changes this week:

  • We’ve added the ability to send an SMS invoice notification (and payment receipt for families using auto-pay). For this feature to work, you’ll need to enable it in your School Settings page and ensure that the parent has at least one phone number setup with “Texting Allowed“.
  • The “Messaging” tab in School Settings has been renamed “Email & SMS“, and new SMS templates are available for customizing the messaging for the new invoice and invoice reminder SMS messages.
  • Added the ability to change the time that auto-invoices are sent from My School Books. This setting is available on “School Settings > Account and Invoices tab”. We’ve changed everyone’s default from midnight to 8AM.
  • We made a couple of optimizations to My School Books hosted websites so that they’ll load a bit faster.

 

Did you know? We adjusted the student payment process so that if the parent had previously logged in using the “Remember Me” option, they’re automatically remembered if they pay an invoice directly from the “Click here to pay this invoice online” link.
