The MaxClass team wishes all our users and visitors a happy new year!
We're making a good start with the new tagging functionality which has (finally!) gone live.
If you have a number of parents in the school that have signed up to be in the PTA, it can be useful to tag them. By adding a tag they can be recognized as proud members of the PTA (as the tag is shown next to their name) and you can send a message to all the PTA members by choosing this tag while mailing to them. It can still be useful to set up a special group with all the PTA members in it (for sharing documents, posts, pictures etc) but with tagging you have an easy alternative.
Another example can be tags for focus groups, teachers or parents with specific knowlegde or tasks or a "student of the week" tag. It's up to you!
Tags can be assigned on a class level or - for those schools that have a school license - for the whole school.

After a few weeks of testing, MaxClass Calendar has started sending out it's first calendar reminders.
You receive a daily or weekly overview of all items in all classes or groups in one e-mail. A weekly overview is sent on Saturday for the coming week. Each user can change the frequency in the user preferences (My info / Preferences / “Select which messages will be sent by e-mail”)
Please note: reminders are not the same as notifications. If you want to be notified that someone has added an item to a calendar, please turn that feature on (default is off) in your preferences.
