Great Communication Tool!

I have used pretty much all the communication apps out there and although I know some of them have added recently some of the same services, I have found ClassTag to be the best at most of them. The biggest draw? It’s FREE; so far they do not have a pay for version that gives you unlimited access...all the access is free. Other apps started charging for unlimited photos and videos and I upload a lot! I also love how I can communicate with my ENL parents effortlessly. All of my announcements and messages are translated for me which means I can communicate with the parents that speak little to no English without the extra step of running it through a translator. Are there ways to improve? Absolutely, but they are very eager to hear new ideas. I am very pleased with how ClassTag has kept the parents involved in our classroom.

Offers some things remind doesn’t but misses some things

I have been using the app for about 2 weeks now. From their description you can see the good. So I’ll speak more about the things I miss from Remind. #1, if you get a parent message you see their name but there’s no way to click on their name to see whose parent they are. (I guess a fix we could do would be to edit their name to say their kid’s name too). #2 the app send you notification when you get a message, but that’s all. There is no preview. With remind the notification included a preview. #3. If parents provide (or you add) their email) The default contact mode that they receive messages through is email, not text. There’s now way for teachers to choose. Only app savvy parents can change the setting. #3 it is harder to add files from a phone. With remind I could easily attach a photo, doc, voice message, etc. To a message.
The good: options for asking for volunteers, to sign up for things and to add a calendar. Automatic weekly summaries, etc.

Pretty glitchy and full of ads

I’ve been using this app for two years with my son’s preschool. The overabundance of ads took some getting used to and isn’t the biggest issue I have this this app. The bigger problem is that despite notifications being turned on, I only receive them about half the time. I have both text alerts and push notifications on. My son’s teacher only knows about messages if she navigates to the message folder and opens it. Even then, sometimes new messages aren’t displayed. Other parents agree that this app has major issues for a communication app. And now there’s a new problem: while composing a message or announcement the page constantly scrolls back to the top. By the time you scroll back down and find your place it does it again and it’s SO frustrating. I have to write my messages in my notes app and copy + paste to ClassTag now. I’m glad this will be my last year having to use this app, honestly. Hopefully these glitches will be fixed for future users.

Developer Response ,

Hi there - we sincerely appreciate you for taking the time to send this feedback. Apologies for any inconvience. Our developers have already fixed the app constantly refreshing by itself. Please check if it works better now on your end. As for the notification issue, we'd like to investigate this further. If you wouldn't mind, please send us additional details at of the type of notifications that you're not receiving. If you could also provide us with examples when the app didn't send you any notifications, that will be great. Thanks in advance!
