Ratings and Reviews

So far so good

Chaplain Matt

Easy to use and linked to the website product

Where did messages go?


UPDATE: I have found out that if you updated to this version, you have to log off and then back in again for it know you are an admin and provide you with the ability to create/send messages. (Customer support via email was not able to help me figure this out.) App is running correctly now so I have changed my rating to reflect this.

I can no longer create and send messages from the app! Interface looks decent, but with out messages it just a directory.

A Must Have App For School Administrators!

DJ Z-Roc

This app is a must. Being split between two schools, communication is the key! The app is definitely for the mobile administrator.
