Product features and highlights for October

Announcing a significant enhancement within EdSmart – now you can use special characters! 

Special characters in EdSmart Slips and Forms πŸ™Œ

In this day and age, it is common to communicate with emojis. Maybe you reserve them for emphasis πŸ‘€, or to indicate emotion πŸ˜„? Maybe you're looking for more nuanced communication – "GarΓ§on, a soufflΓ© for my entrΓ©e!"?

However you do it, they are pretty much everywhere! And now they're in EdSmart πŸŽ‰

Emojis are a relative newcomer 🐣 to the Special Characters Scene. Before them, there were the Diacritical Marks πŸ€”, not to mention entire languages such as Vietnamese and Chinese!

Get into the enhanced communication that's now at your fingertips in EdSmart. Engage with the youth of today, or connect with the diversity in your local community, using our Broadcasts and Slips πŸ—£οΈ 🌏 πŸ‘

Speaking their language? πŸ’Ž

Lefthand sidebar always visible πŸ‘οΈ

So, you're scrolling through a long list of Slips or Forms in EdSmart, and the sidebar disappears off the top of the page, leaving you feeling lost 😱

That is now a thing of the past thanks to our improved static sidebar ⚑ No, not that kind of static! The stay put and always visible kind of static 😊

Even with your longest list, you can always see the sidebar and know exactly where you are.

Because you should only get lost 🏝️ when you want to!


Sort Parent Slips by Calendar Date πŸ—“οΈ

It made sense to you and it makes sense to us. Now you can sort your Parent Slips list by the date of the event πŸ‘
