[RSM Weekly Update #14]: bulk mailing is live

By Anna Toma, Rise SA Team 

Last time we discussed bulk mailing being in the final stage of testing.
If you have missed a Weekly Update#13, feel free to check it out here.

Last week we did final tweaks and improvements to the bulk mailing in RSM. 
Due to the latter, we are excited to share with you some good news. 
Bulk mailing functionality is live and available to schools. 

Some of you have been eagerly awaiting this news, as emailing over 1000 learners can be tedious and difficult, 
esp. when Bursars and Admin Staff already juggle quite a few things. 

If you would like to bulk mail parents, pls email back and I will send you a manual. 
We can also show you how it works in our Weekly Meeting with your School. 

On a different note, Anneke de Vrie, Deputy Principal, who has been using Rise Communicator
to communicate with all parents, shared last week: "Love the system!". 
They have got 927 parents onboard just after a month since coming onboard. 
This is a great case in point, as their learners come from different areas. It shows if there is a will, there is a way. 

Mariska from Excelsior shared her feedback on a highly anticipated Google Spreadsheet integration: 
"It will make our capturing of learner and parent info so much easier if 
parents can complete this themselves then the info is on RISE and on their statements.
I don't necessarily want to use the enrollment forms because remember parents 
must apply online with WCED. I want them to complete their info via the Google 
form to save us from capturing all their data or amending their data on RISE." 

The above is spot on - it will save Admin Staff and Bursars from capturing learners' data or amending it on Rise. 

We will soon share some exciting news on the Google spreadsheet integration. Watch this space.
