New SMS functionality in v3.0.12 of eTrackr
VLE is pleased to announce the release of V22.214.171.124 with a new version of the SMS system, which is built into eTrackr. The existing SMS system will continue to operate as it currently does, but customers now have the opportunity to upgrade to the new version - please contact VLE Support for details of costings.
What’s New in SMS V2?
The new system enables students to reply to text messages and for staff to have a two way text conversation with individual students.
- Students can reply to text messages, which will then appear on the screen in eTrackr.
- You can send individual and group text messages. When you message a group you have the option to deselect certain students. Once sent, these messages will appear instantly in the individual SMS dialogue pop-ups on the student pages.
- You can also message a whole course (if the course contains fewer than 60 students)
- There is also a full audit trail of all messages sent and received.
Please contact VLE Support for more information about this new functionality and about how to upgrade.
