So, you have created a beautiful newsletter through Smore, or another newsletter-creation service, and you want to send it to your entire school...now what? Thankfully, you can now easily send your newsletters through our updated Notify feature. Let's walk through it together.
Export your Newsletter
After you have completed building your newsletter in Smore or another service, you can export the newsletter's HTML code via the 'Mass Notification Export' button. For Smore customers, I'll include the instructions for this here. For customers of other platforms, you can typically find this option in the 'Share' feature.
**Smore customers, please uncheck the box to 'Use standard HTML' prior to copying the code so that your message will paste into Notify correctly.
Once this is done, you can log into SchoolStatus and click on the 'Notify Message Center' left menu item.
Paste HTML Code into Notify
Within Notify, select your audience and then select 'Email' as your method of communication. From here, please click on the 'Code View' button within the formatting widget. It will be to the far right and will display the name of the tool if you hover over it.
After clicking the 'Code View' button, the email body section will turn black and will present a cursor. Here is where you can paste the HTML code from the export of your newsletter.
Once your HTML code has been pasted in, click the 'Code View' button again to save your message and then you can now finish the process of sending or scheduling your Notify message.
That's it! Now, you can easily share your newsletters with your parents and stakeholders. If you would like to know more about Notify, you can click here.
