The new year means new webinars! To kick off 2017 we are hosting a webinar on Thursday, January 12th and Thursday, January 19th at 3pm on KiNVO's mobile app (RSVP here)! Webinars are only 30 minutes long, because we know our users have busy schedules. If you aren’t able to join us, read on for some easy guidelines to follow on this topic!
KiNVO is available on both iOS and Android. KiNVO’s mobile app is intended to complement our teacher and administrator’s “on the go” lifestyle and saves them time by giving them access to their rosters in the palm of their hands. With lightweight ways to record attendance, send messages to parents, manage parent contacts, and receive push notifications, the mobile app complements your web app experience.
Our hope is that KiNVO mobile’s new push notifications remind our teachers and administrators to record attendance every day, and reply to parents in a faster manner. Our push notifications offer:
- Real-time notification of parent response to a message.
- Daily digest of parent responses with a notification once every day at 3pm.
- Daily reminder at 5pm to record attendance for any courses that users forgot to record attendance.
- Updates about new features, tips, and tricks to use KiNVO (the KiNVO team can send you personalized messages about new features).
How can parents get involved with KiNVO’s mobile app? At Kinvolved we are committed to closing today’s digital gap. According to the Pew Research Center, only 41% of people without a high school degree have a smartphone, and just 52% of people earning $30K or less have one. This starkly contrasts with the 81% of people who earn $75-100K.
For this reason, we have chosen to focus on utilizing SMS to communicate with parents, versus building a parent-facing smartphone app for our parent community demographic. This means that parents need not download or log into an app to access teachers via KiNVO. In fact, they don’t even require a smartphone. To receive KiNVO’s SMS, they simply need a basic cell phone.
