Announcements / Mar 06, 2019

You’ll ??, ?, ? and ? ClassTag’s Newest Update!

One of the best apps for teachers is about to get a whole lot more expressive.

It’s time for us to release an update that you’ve all been waiting for…

Drumroll Please!

 

REACTIONS AND COMMENTS!

Did you know that Facebook reports almost 200 BILLION “Reactions” and over 20 BILLION comments per month on their posts worldwide??

Now, they may have a few more users than we do, but the impression that gives us is that people in general LOVE to comment on and react to things. They love to “Love”, they love to “Laugh” and they love to “WOW”. People also love to see how their message is being received, and the feedback is almost always immediate.

To keep ClassTag one of the best apps for teachers, this was something we wanted to get on board.

So, Say Hello to: ??, ?, ? and ?… and more on ClassTag!

Feedback has always been an important part of communication, especially in teaching and learning. That’s one reason why we want to give parents the chance to provide teachers with feedback, in the form of comments and reactions for Announcements in the ClassTag app.

At ClassTag, our #1 goal has always been to be one of the best apps for teachers by helping you reach and engage with every parent. Comments and Reactions will make ClassTag more social and enjoyable for parents, making it easier for teachers to connect with them.

Plus, we’ve already gotten some amazing feedback from teachers about this feature, which they helped design:

For the time being, this fantastic new feature will only be available on Announcements, but stay tuned! It may be available on more post types in the future.

But I’m a Teacher, I love to stay in control!

Have no fear! Teachers will have the option to disable Commenting and Reactions on individual Announcements. So, if you’re posting something that you would rather not have parents react to, you can turn it off for that post, without affecting any others. The choice is yours!

Well, there you have it! We hope you enjoy and have some fun with our newest update. ClassTag is the only completely FREE  technology that really empowers you to reach any parent. Our easy-to-use platform lets you effortlessly engage with parents while saving time and earning much-needed supplies for your classroom.


 

We work hard on making ClassTag one of the best apps for teachers and we are ALWAYS open to your feedback. Have an idea for a new feature or want to see something improved? Send us an email at support@classtag.com or post in our  ClassTag Educators’ Lounge Facebook Group.

And, as always, thank you for being a part of our community!
