Configure automatic birthday notifications for your employees, students, and parents. The automatic notification can be sent to a user as an email, SMS text message, or push notification.
You can set the birthday notification delivery time, set different notification types (email, SMS, push) for each group of users (employees, students, parents), and configure these for each institution individually.
Birthday notification relies on Message Templates. So, in order for this feature to work, message template(s) need to be defined first. For more info on how to set up a Message Template, see this article.
Note: The notifications are sent to employees only from their primary institution and also to enrolled students and their parents.
i. Configuring Birthday Notification Settings in Institution Settings.
Birthday Notifications can be found in the Institution > Manage Settings section.
There you can select which message template will be used to send an automatic notification to users.
ii. Setting the Birthday Notification Delivery Time in System Settings.
The birthday notification delivery time is set in System > Manage System Settings section.
From there you can choose the time and timezone for the delivery.
Once the birthday notification settings have been set up (message template and notification delivery time) for your institution(s), users will receive birthday notifications automatically.
