Stakeholder engagement can only work if we have accurate contact information. Parental communication is hard enough without adding a barrier like a phone number changing. SchoolStatus is about removing communication barriers so you can do something with your data.
What is Contact Flagging?
Any user can flag a contact number for any reason. It doesn't just have to be that the number is inaccurate. You might make a note that the number is temporarily out of service until next week or that you should contact another person for the time being. Regardless, we give you the ability to flag a number and leave a note on it. Here's how to do it on mobile:
Once logged in to the mobile app, search for a student, and select a contact.
Select Actions and then Flag Phone Number.
Type note and select Flag Number.
Flagged contacts look like this:
To remove the flag or view the notes, select Actions.
That's it! Now anyone who is accessing this contact on this student will see your flag and notes. Help keep your fellow educators in the loop by leaving detailed flag notes.
But who can resolve and remove flags for the whole school? Answer: Only those who have access to the 'Flagged Contacts' module. Check out this help article for that topic.
