Add a Video Room URL to Parent Appointment Schedules

By Software Updates No Comments

Schools who prefer to use their own video meeting rooms, perhaps with Zoom or similar, can show the URL for the teachers ‘video rooms’ on parents’ appointment schedules, making it easy for parents to join their video appointments.

School administrators simply need to add URLs for these ‘video rooms’ to the admin area (of Parents Booking) via the Teachers page, and these URLs will then be shown to parents as part of their print, e-mail or web-page confirmation when parents’ evenings are created (or by pressing ‘Update’ on the Dashboard > Options > Edit the Teachers page, to import these ‘video room’ URLs into previously set up parents’ evenings).

Bulk-Add Breaks and Bulk-Extend Teacher Appointment Schedules

By Software Updates No Comments

One of the new features in Parents Booking’s most recent release allows administrators to add breaks and extend appointments for groups of teachers, at once, in just a few clicks. This saves the administrator from having to make these changes teacher-by-teacher, and it’s something both simple and effective that we’ve found schools have been looking for recently.

Once you have a parents’ evening set up, find this functionality at: Dashboard > Options > Print, Email, Block Out and Extend Teachers > Mass Block/Extend.
