Wishlist for app
I’ve been using the app for a couple of weeks and it’s pretty user friendly. I am not tech savvy, so that’s saying a lot. My wishes for making it better: 1) when you first add parents you can add an email, but not the parents names. You have to go back in and click edit to add names, which is weird. 2) there is no way to calendar recurring events. I have to enter each time my kids have PE, which is every Friday. Would be nice to enter the event and set all the upcoming dates at once, then let the app send the reminders. 3) my photo wouldn’t load correctly. It loaded sideways even after I tried editing the photo by flipping the original photo around. Would be great to have an edit option on photos directly on the app. Otherwise, I’m getting good feedback from parents that the app is good.
Reoccurring events, receiving notifications, setting a time to send messages to one person
I’m looking for an app that I can set reoccurring events. For example, being able to set a message every Sunday that Gym will be on Monday and students need to wear tennis shoes, setting a message every Tuesday that Library will be on Wednesday and students need to remember to return their library book. I do not like receiving messages via email, I often miss important messages because they’re lost in my emails. This is very frustrating! I would rather be able to receive messages via the app and have everything in one place. I want to be able to set a time to send messages to one person. The app lets you set a time to send messages to the group, but it does not let you set a time to send messages to one person. For example, I would like to be able to set a time to send a message reminding parents when their child’s snack day is. I would like to be able to do this all at the beginning of the month, but schedule it to go out a few days prior to their child’s snack day.
Ads, ads, and more ads!
SEE UPDATE AND RESPONSE TO DEVELOPER AT THE END OF REVIEW. Developer I get it, you have to pay for the work you do, I really do understand...but the placement of ads is right smack dab in the middle of the page among the “real” classroom information. It is not only confusing and busy, it’s misleading since some of the ads basically says... this company or that company donated to the school ie HP donates to XYZ school (and other brands), which is misleading and dishonest. The advertisements take up about 20% of the entire page and when centered on the screen is at a minimum of 75% of the screen real estate. My wife who is a director and the one deciding to use this product and bring it into the organization has decided to pass on this application as a result of the negatives mentioned above. UPDATE: sadly the developer believes I had no say so in the use of this product and responded directly to me as if I was a parent of a child who’s classroom is already using it and basically gave an “oh well” type of response. As a company you have the option of listening to potential and current customers and improving, or not...it is entirely up to you! On a mobile application, screen real estate is a premium, gobbling 20 to 30% of that with confusing, misplaced and unrelated advertising kills the usefulness of the app. In this case the juice is simply not worth the squeeze.
Love this app!
I am truly loving they app. It is just what I had been looking for! I am a 5th grade teacher and had been on the hunt for a website or app that would enable me to communicate quickly with parents. I wanted to be able to not only send announcements, but also post photos quickly and communicate with parents individually or small groups. But, most of all, I wanted something that would alert the parents when I posted something new. And ClassTag does just that! I also love the ability to pin something to the top of the feed and I love the look of the feed. The only thing I wish it had was the ability for parents to comment on postings. BUT that feature is coming and I could not be more excited. Thank you for developing this awesome app!
I LOVE THE APP
I love the App! I’m currently going back and fourth between this App and another App in my classroom, and I’m leaning more towards Classtag, being my only way of communication with parents. I love that I’m able to communicate with parents quicker and I have more characters to write a message to parents verses the other App that I use. I only have two issues. My first issue is being able to send a Bitmoji through the App and my second issue (parents are also complaining about this) is once you tap a title on the app you have to hit it multiple times before it takes you to the screen that you’re requesting. Once the issues above are resolved I’ll gladly give the App 5 stars!
Amazing Communication Tool
I’ve used other apps to communicate with my students’ parents but none of them had the features ClassTag has. In addition to sending out regular messages about what’s happening in our classroom as an e-newsletter, I also schedule conferences, set up sign-ups for class parties, send and receive private messages from individual and small groups of parents, create a Spanish version of any texts, AND see stats on who’s reading my e-newsletter and who I need to follow up with using a printed version. Parents can choose to receive my updates via the app or email, and decide whether they want their information kept private, and can communicate with each other. I absolutely love this!
I love ClassTag, I love all the services it provides. It makes life easier to do it from this app and it’s even better to earn some coins to redeem for different rewards for the classroom use. That being said, my school required a behavior app this year and so I’m shuffling between dojo and classtag. I wish that classtag offers the behavior side but just have the option of turning it off for those who did not want to use it. I hate that I’m shuffling between an app that I love for communication with parents and sharing events and things happening in the classroom and an app that I am required to have for the behavior side of things that also has communication aspect but not the other things I love about classtag.
So far this is a useful app
I have been using this app only for a few weeks. It took some time to get use to it but now I appreciate it. I like that emails come to explain how some features work. I wish there was an option to post photos without being able to save them. We have a strict policy on privacy if other children are on the photos. For this reason, I cannot post class photos because the parents can download them. I like that I can choose how to announce or remind of some information. The parents like that they can contact each other. However it is hard to tell if they can see each others contact or not. Overall, I m satisfied with the app.
This is a lifesaver!
My son’s classroom uses ClassTag and I regularly use the app. I don’t know what I would do without it. There are so many updates, pictures, scheduled events, and things going on at his school that there is no way I could keep up if it wasn’t right here in one single place on my phone. I love that his teacher messages me personally to share his successes along the way. I really feel so much more connected to what’s going on during his day than any year before. The app itself is quick, easy to learn, and I can get my questions answered from the ClassTag team right there with the touch of 1 button. I love ClassTag! ❤️❤️
I love ClassTag and so do all my parents! I love that I can see when they have seen a post or message. I love being able to make Activities and have parents sign up for things and I love that I can announce the Activity, as a reminder. This app has made my life so much easier. The only thing I don’t like is that I have to scroll through every post to go back and look at something and then once you look at it, it takes you all the way back to the top of the page. So if you have several things you have to go back and look at, it will take you back to the top of the page, every time you look at the post. ClassTag is amazing!
LOVE but the app is extremely slow
I have always used Remind to communicate with the parents of my students. I REALLY love ClassTag and it’s easy to use. What I like about it is how the teacher can see which parents at involved on the app and which parents do not check the app. The ONLY thing I do not like about ClassTag is the app is SLOWWWWWWWWWW !!!! Can you please fix this? It’s super frustrating when you are trying to quickly message a parent! Everything on this app is slow. Whether it’s checking my inbox or just simply opening the app, it’s so slow. I know it’s not my phone because no other app is slow.
Make the Switch
I had been using Remind101 for several years. Though I enjoyed its user-friendly interface, I felt that it wasn't meeting all my needs as a classroom teacher. I wanted to do more than just send out reminders, and that is where ClassTag is hands down the best app for your classroom. You can still do all the things other parent communication apps do, but with this one you get coins/rewards that you can redeem for free things in your classroom. Also, their parent directory is awesome. The feedback overall has been very positive and I look forward to continuing using it moving forward.
LOVE FEATURES but app is soooo GLITCHY!!
Ugh! I LOVE everything classtag has to offer, but I have sooooooooo many issues with the app loading - and so do the other teachers and parents that use it with me!! How does this not get fixed?? The whole year it’s been the same! No improvement! It’s so upsetting because I REALLY like the features. But I can’t miss notifications and not know parents are contacting me! I’m also redirected ALL THE TIME! In the middle of creating things! Someone needs to look into the app and make the improvements and I think this has real potential to be used more. All the issues turn people away from it and the best selling part of this app is that it suppose to make our lives easier!!
I’ve been using ClassTag for 2 years now. It has helped increase my communication with parents and families! I love the translation part of the app! My students and families who do not speak English can have any message I post or send translated into their preferred language. I earn coins just for communicating with my families and I can use those coins to get things for my classroom. Any time I have an issue, their customer service always responds quickly and helps fix what is wrong! They take my feedback about the app and suggestions on how to make it better!
I have had continuous problems with both the app and the web version the entire school year. Our team teaches over 100 kids, and we’ve heard the same complaints from parents since September. The app crashes in the middle of messaging (so you lose whatever you were writing). It shows messages as sent - they never go through and disappear from history. The app gives error messages regularly and will not load. The bowser version will not load, when it does it is extremely slow. I have gone several school days without being able to communicate with parents. As a teacher, I would not recommend this to anyone. I have handled more complaints and more frustrated parents this year because of this program and it’s many problems.
