More Options with Invite by Phone Number!

Exciting News! We want to share that our newest feature has just been released - the Invite via Phone Numbers feature. Starting now, you can invite parents by phone number to your class.
Parents who sign up to the class via text can also sign in to the app with their phone number and the temporary password we send as part of signing up through Text.
Before this release, the parent who signed up via TEXT was unable to reply to the messages or view photos. So with today's release, even the existing parents who signed up using the text, will receive their temporary password and the link to the app. This will allow even the existing users to sign in with their phone number without having to create another account with email.
Parents signing into the app with their phone number and temporary password, enables various opportunities for increased communication and participation, that could not be accomplished just with TEXT. Within the app, parents can write and reply to private messages from the teacher, participate in volunteer/item sign-ups, sign-up for parent conferences, use the calendar and view class events, view and comment on photos, and even create or participate in their own groups for after school activities, clubs, sports teams and more.
This new feature is currently available on iOS (iPhone/iPad) and the Android version will be released in just a few days.
