Communications Wizard is a powerful feature of Grades2Go™ Desktop that takes all the tedium out of creating and distributing Progress Reports for individual class sections.  You can literally create and electronically distribute clear, well-formatted reports or memos to Students and their Support Circles within just a few clicks!.  The Communications Wizard makes it easy to be proactive in Parent/Guardian communications to an extent never before possible — building your accountability as well as your image as a teacher.





Manages two kinds of Section-wide communications:

Reports — reports of individual student performance, attached as PDF documents to a cover email with a personalized Subject line, and distributed automatically (or printed for manual distribution) to designated student/Support Circle recipients

Memos — email memos of a general nature, with a personalized Subject line and optional attachments (eg calendar, class roster, etc), and distributed automatically (or printed for manual distribution) to designated student/Support Circle recipients

Can include all students in a communication, or just selected ones

Support Circle recipients can include the student, parents/guardians, the guidance counselor, and the teacher

Reports are easily configured by simply checking/unchecking desired Report Modules

Reports can be previewed before they are actually created and distributed

Report configurations can be named and saved as Templates

Saved Templates can be edited and deleted

Emails can be distributed via either the Gmail server (the suggested option because it is both powerful and free) or a user-defined one

Jobs are logged into a Communications Wizard Index for easy status monitoring and document retrieval

Pending jobs are prompted upon opening a Section Dashboard (each new Section job must be completed before a new one is started

Pending jobs can be canceled
