When COVID-19 hit last year, we added video-conferences to School Interviews. This was hugely popular, with over a thousand schools using the new feature. But as we've all adapted to new ways of working, schools have asked about phone meetings instead, or phone and video-conference meetings. We think you're going to say "mmm!" when you see our new multi-mode meetings.
School Interviews can now handle bookings for school productions, information evenings, or seminars.
School Interviews makes it easy to see who has made bookings, but sometimes you need to find out who hasn't. For example, if you have an event where you need all parents to attend, you want a list of those who haven't booked so you can chase them up. Our new cross-referencing feature means you can now do this without bribing the local database guru.
Most families and students are getting used to learning remotely but essential services families or vulnerable students may still require supervision at school. How do we know who is turning up on which day? What staff do we need on-site? And how do we trace who had contact with someone who turns out to be infectious? Our sister service CareBookings service has the answers for you.
We're getting a lot of demand for pastoral care bookings, so students can contact counsellors during the pandemic. School Interviews has always been able to do this, but now we've added a little magic to make it much easier to set up and manage.
If you can't do face-to-face meetings any more, why not do video interviews? We've combined a new feature in School Interviews with a free video conferencing service to make this almost as simple as setting up normal events. Read on to find out just how easily you can provide remote interviews.
COVID-19 is suddenly a thing, and many schools are needing to cancel some or all of their events. We've rushed a new feature into production to make this as easy as everything else in School Interviews.
When parents make a booking, they have to enter their name and email address. But you can ask for other information too, by setting up custom fields. Read on to learn more about this useful feature, and how we've added a couple of enhancements that make it even more valuable.
The first weeks have whizzed past in a blur, and the summer break is probably a distant memory. Here are a few reminders to get you back up to speed with School Interviews before your next event bookings.
If you have very sharp eyes, you may have noticed that School Interviews emails now come from firstname.lastname@example.org instead of email@example.com (or .ca, .oc.nz or .co.uk). Read on to find out how this tiny change makes a big difference!
