Contacts on the School Buddy for School platform create an easy way for you to message members of your community/district. To learn more about what a contact is, check out the article attached here.

To create a new contact:

  • Head over to the Contacts page in the School Buddy for Schools admin panel

  • If you do not have any contacts at the moment, choose the blue Add Contact button. If you do have active contacts, you can add additional ones using the button in the top portion of the page.

  • Once you're on the creation page, enter as much information as you wish about the contact. Only a name is required, but you'll need to provide more information if you wish to send messages to the contact in the future.

  • When adding a phone number, you'll need to make sure it is in the proper format (or it will not be saved). All phone numbers must include the country code. For the United States, you begin each number with a +1. For example, the phone number (888)123-4567 would be entered into the system as +18881234567. Make sure there are no additional characters and the formatting is correct before saving.

  • Once you have added all of the information you wish to add, you can click the blue Create Contact button at the bottom of the page. If everything was entered correctly, you should see the contact and the entered information on the Contacts page.

✨ Feel free to reach out to the Support Team using the chat icon in the bottom-right if you ever have any questions.
