To create a new message go to Me > Messages or use the Messages quicklink icon.
Click on New on the right-hand side of the screen. You can start typing a name straight in the ‘To’ box or you can use the Browse button to search for different groups, you’ll be able to see your individual classes, years groups, all students etc. Alternatively, you can fill in the About box with a student first, if you want to get a list of potential recipients linked to that student.
To add an attachment to your message, click on the Choose button, next drag the file into the ‘Drag & drop files here’ box. Select the uploaded file from the list below the drag and drop box to attach the file to your message.
Note: You will be able to have a maximum of 50 attachments stored on your upload space, if you exceed this limit you will need to delete some of your old files that you no longer wish to use.
As soon as you are ready to send your message, press the Send message button.
If you send a message to 2 or more parents, 50 or more students, or both parents and students, then your conversation will be marked as completed and your recipients will not be able to respond, regardless of your site settings.
