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:
Step 1: Click on Contacts from the Student Card
Step 2: Click the flag icon for the contact you want to flag, and click flag number.
Step 3: Type your note and click submit.
Flagged numbers show in red.
Step 4: View flag notes by clicking the notebook icon.
Step 5: Remove your own flags by clicking the flag icon and choosing Remove Flag.
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.
Who can resolve and remove flags for the whole school?
Only those who have access to the 'Flagged Contacts' module. Check out this help article for all the details.
