|Matthew's Corner: Emergency Emails|
Have you ever had a snow storm or some other emergency close your campus and cancel all of your classes? For about two years now (since version 7.2.060), you have had the ability to send Emergency Emails from the Tools Menu with everyone in a class for the day of the emergency getting emailed.
Well, several times people have come to us and asked for Emergency Emails that only pertain to one building. They were running into times where the water was off in the building or a thunderstorm knocked a tree through the third story window or something like that. So we added a new option for Building Specific Emergency Emails in build 7.2.A.020.
In both cases, you choose the day of the emergency (defaults to today), you are given the option to edit message to send to the students, you also have the ability to email the teachers, and you have the ability to edit the subject sent. In Building Specific Emergency Emails, a check-mark list of buildings comes up and you can select as many buildings as you want.
With winter approaching and about half the U.S. facing snowstorms, I'm sure this is one feature that will get used a lot in the next several months assuming you can somehow get access to Student Manager during the emergency to send them.
Until next time...
