Sending Bulk Messages

Have a parent seminar, a school assembly, or a staff meeting coming up and need to quickly send a reminder to parents, students, or staff in the school? Edsby Zooms enable administrators to send bulk messages to groups of individuals at the school.

Messages sent in bulk are pre-addressed with the selected names and the BCC label indicates each recipient only sees their own name. Other recipients of the massage do not see who else is included in the message.

Administrators can remove a name from the message by clicking the X beside it.

Messaging Students and Parents

Administrators can message students, their parents, or both through the Students Zoom, Parents Zoom, Classes Zoom, or from within a group.

In a Zoom, filter and use the gear icon to select who to send the message to. Click the drop-down arrow at the top right of the Zoom and select the recipients.

In a Group, click the view all members link. Then, click the drop-down arrow and select the recipients.

Fill out the message and click Send. Recipients will receive the message in their Edsby mailbox.

Messaging Staff Members

Administrators can message teachers and other staff members in the school through the Staff Zoom and Classes Zoom.

In the Zoom, filter and use the gear icon to select who to send the message to. Click the drop-down arrow at the top right of the Zoom and select the recipients.

Fill out the message and click Send. Recipients will receive the message in their Edsby mailbox.

Messaging Group Members

In addition to messaging students and parents directly from a group, administrators can message all group members or moderators from the Groups Zoom.

Filter to which groups to send the message to. Click the drop-down arrow at the top right of the Zoom and select the recipients – either all members or just the moderators.

Fill out the message and click Send. Recipients will receive the message in their Edsby mailbox.
