They can be used to link to Important Entries within the SkoolBag App, or link directly to other services.
One category you should ensure you setup from the start is your School's Contact Details.
3. Setup Content Groups such as Year Groups, Sports Teams & Staff for the Groups Tab
Content Groups allow users to subscribe to relevant updates based on students year groups or activities to ensure you can send targeted updates to the right people, at the right time.
You can setup Groups to be Open, Closed or Hidden. Meaning they are great for delivering audience-specific information or Staff Related Communications.
You'll be able to add users to Groups in Bulk later.
