This is a great tool for bulk parent and student communication!
This file allows you to not only store student and parent contact information, but actually create and send emails directly from this spreadsheet. Your own email information in as the 'Send From' email and then you are able to create a single email to send to multiple students at one time. You can insert student and parent names, titles, and pronouns directly into the one email and the program will convert to the correct name, pronoun, etc. when sending the email. You can even add attachments to the email!
With the click of a button, emails can be sent to multiple students/parents/etc. that look personalized with correct names and pronouns. Additionally, all emails are archived on a separate sheet for future reference.
This is a .zip file; however, it contains a Microsoft Excel product, so be sure that you have a DESKTOP VERSION of Microsoft Excel to run it. (Macros must be enabled, so check with your IT department or test out the demo version if you are unsure if you have the rights to enable macros).
*MICROSOFT EXCEL ONLINE WILL NOT WORK
**Microsoft Excel for Mac 2008 will not work (2004 or 2011 should work in theory, but this product has not been tested on a MAC. Try out the preview file first to be sure)
**To be certain that you meet the technical requirements, download the preview file. If you can open and use that file, you should be good to go.
