Schedule School Announcements

From the administrator perspective, I would like the ability to "schedule send" announcements to families, students and/or teachers.  I usually do all of my announcements for the week over the weekend so they are complete.  This scheduling option would allow me to not have to remember daily when an announcement needs to be shared.

    Thank you all for sharing your feedback! We are definitely tracking scheduling school announcements closely as we think of product improvements for the school administrator experience.

  • I completely agree!  Also, I often think of things late in the evening or when I am getting ready in the morning and don't wish to send the messages that late or early.

  • Having scheduled announcements would be perfect as the situation concerning our start to school is very fluid. It would be great to be able to schedule various announcements and action items for our families daily.

  • I think that having this additional feature added to Seesaw would be extremely helpful! It would be really helpful to be able to pre-schedule announcements to be released on a specific day and time for students and their families.

  • Not just school announcements... teacher announcements as well.  I tend to complete things in the evening and do not want to send things out late.  It would be great to be able to schedule announcements to go out!

  • Yes, I would really like this feature. It would help for planning and not having to scramble in the moment to do something when it could have been prepared ahead of time and scheduled.

    Also it would be GREAT to be able to share the announcement with my team of teachers.  So they could post it as well. What I want to share is a schedule for the day and there is A LOT in it and so it would be very redundant for each teacher to spend the time recreating the content when it could just be shared, especially if they can't do it in advance.

    (I'll perhaps put this in another request as it is a bit off topic for this request to be able to schedule announcements.)

  • My teachers end up posting the daily schedule to the activities area or post to the journal and tag everyone all because they can't make the announcement go to to the top or schedule it. Even though it's possible for them to do this I don't find it to be best practice because now "housekeeping" is cluttering the child's learning journal. It's being used as.a workaround since Announcement feature is so limiting, can't tag one to the top, can't schedule.

  • I agree with this! Our school would especially like to be able to use it for pushing out daily action items right now during these crazy times...for example, the daily health screening form. I think the ability to schedule announcements would be very beneficial in the future as well, but especially now when frequent and reliable communication between the school and families is a matter of safety. Thank you for considering, Seesaw!

  • I was just thinking this. It would helpful since I travel to school at different times. My announcements are in Google drive and I have to do it from computer.

  • This would be very helpful since most of the time It’s really late when I am planning and thinking of upcoming announcements but I don’t want to disturb parents that late and I get so busy in the am that Inforget to send out announcement altogether.

  • This would be so helpful! As a teacher who did online learning that meant getting up at 1:00 am (as in a different time zone) it would have really helped to have known that learning had been scheduled and sent. Now in same time zone but would be so helpful when sending information to students and parents.

  • Yes please! This was a popular feature in other apps I have used before.  I like to schedule them all for the week or often think of things at times I do not necessarily want a message being sent.  With so many of us teaching virtually right now this would be huge.  Thanks for considering!

  • Scheduling announcements would be so helpful! I would also like to be able to select certain families to message but not have to send to all. Sometimes I need to announce something to a small group and the only way to do that is to copy and paste the same individual message. It would also be nice to message both mom and dad on the same message.

  • The Remind App schedules announcements in advance beautifully.  I was hoping for that feature here in Seesaw.  Also, can I save the page that I linked into the announcement?  I would like to be able to find it again if I need it.

  • This should not be from an administrator's perspective (although it could be), but think about those of us that teach music for example.  I have 33 classes and would like to get announcements done when I have the time, but want to schedule their arrival time.  Thank you.
