Can’t set it up

I registered but when I am trying to set up my institution it asks for “reference number and contact info on file”. What does that mean? I tried every number and contact info that I could think of that might be “on file”. Nothing worked, so I can’t set up to get alerts from my college.

Poor Navigation and more

First - navigation stinks. Try to search. Once you enter the Search feature, the only way out is to kill the app.
More annoying, the requirement to have your iPhones Location Services on to use the app.
I have an older phone and Location Services is a drag on the battery life. If I have subscribed, what does Location Services have to do with getting school generated alerts? Where I am, or the app knowing where I am at that moment, should NEVER keep me from getting an alert.
I will stick to web portal through my child’s school system website.
Highly disappointed user.
