- If turned ON, families will be able to search for and start conversations with teachers AND privately reply to announcements.
- Families can reply to announcements in the 3 dots menu or "press and hold" on mobile.
- The “Family Messaging” class setting is OFF by default, and families will always be able to reply to 1:1/group conversations started by the teacher regardless of this setting.
How do Teachers turn this setting on?
Navigate to Class Settings (wrench icon) > Families > select Family messaging.
Toggle the option "on" to allow families to start new conversations with teachers.
