Useful app, some processes cumbersome

This app is useful but not perfect. It takes too many clicks to search for a parent, a search bar should appear by default that you can start typing in straight away when you go to contacts.

It often freezes up and I have to delete and reinstall it on my phone to get it working again. Log in by fingerprint ID is good and works well. It’s hard to find events and hard to find a post again if you look at it quickly but then don’t know if it was a post or an event.

In the admin side, it would be useful if you could publish an event but hold back ticket sales until a set day and time, so the event can go live before sales do. If there was an easy to see chat section that might help it to overtake WhatsApp in popularity, but so far it hasn’t as people find it too long winded to find things.

But overall very useful and has helped connect parents who otherwise would never have got to know each other.

Your thoughtful comments have been passed onto the product team. For info, you can currently publish an event without tickets so that it appears on the events list and then add tickets later (although you can't yet preschedule the date they go live). We also now have a search bar for contacts and we're looking at how we can introduce search in other areas of the app. Many thanks — The Classlist Team

Good Functionality but a bit slow

The app has got some great functionality but events needs to be more prominent I.e on the home page and it’s a bit slow when switching between features/ modules. Also the iOS app ask for fingerprint verification every time now which again slows down access. This means that we haven’t been able to get parents to move away from WhatsApp as it’s just not as instant to get in and chat

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your review. We'll feedback your suggestions to the team. We ask for fingerprint verification on iOS to login to the app so we can keep things as secure as possible for your school community, rather like you would do on a banking app.

Not a fan of the update.

This app was great- both as a parent and a teacher it was a really lovely way to check in with what’s happening at school.
Since the update I have a few issues:
1) Now when creating a post, for some reason I can only select one photo at a time. If I want to upload lots of photos to show parents this now takes double the time.
2) The photos I upload crop out lots of the picture automatically! I’m not sure why this is, but it’s really annoying. I want the whole picture to be on the post, not just part of it! It means when uploading photos, they have to be the correct orientation or I miss off half the photo.
3) It seems to take much longer to create a post now! I’m not sure why, but again it is since the update.

I love this app and use it a lot, but I find the update really unhelpful in the ways mentioned above.

Developer Response ,

Many thanks, H3720, for the comments, feedback is important to us.
We have added more cropping flexibility and you will hopefully find the images in posts much improved. You can add multi-photos to a post, selecting one at a time. Please reach out to us here with comments where we can help. https://help.classlist.com/hc/en-us/requests/new Please update to the latest version to get these changes. Best wishes
