Can we text parents with PTA reminders that will include date of PTA and their time slots?

Thank you,

Added. You need to choose which PTA to send before pressing "Prepare SMS/Email".





Add the PTAInfo field where you want this info should be in the message.



And test before sending it. If you want to change the info that is being sent, contact support to update the PTASMSQuery setting.

By default, it will send the following format.


Eliya 6:05 PM Class:3N

Yinon 6:15 PM Class:5B

Yishay 6:25 PM Class:2G

Thank you,

It worked very well!

the only issue that we had was the hebrew class name came up as question marks on phones that dont support hebrew lettering. Any idea how to get around it?

Thank you

You welcome. Sadly we cannot update people's phones.

the question was is there a way that the system can use a # instead of the letter ex, כתה ו' shall Class 6 or 6Y?
