Sending emails to students and parents

E-mail is an integral part of iDoceo. You will be able to effortlessly share many aspects of your day to day in class with students and their parents. Audio, Images and video can be added to any cell, header, or the diary, or student and in turn can be sent by e-mail , either to a selection of students or to all students at once.

How it works

Each student has two e-mail fields, one for a personal e-mail, the other for their parents'.

You can add several e-mails in the same field (e.g one for each parent or work/home). You must insert each e-mail separated by a comma, as shown in our example below.
