What’s New 


Back to School  

It’s time to prepare for back to school season and we want to ensure a great customer experience.  Here are some articles that help you get started in our PowerSchool Community. 


You can engage with your peers and the PowerSchool team in our discussion forums which are a great place to ask how-to questions and best practices.  Learn how to post and respond in discussion forums here.  This short video will provide an overview of how to locate product forums and Knowledge Base articles within the Community. 


You can also subscribe to multiple boards within a Community page, doing so will help you receive immediate notifications when updates are posted in the PowerSchool Community. The Subscriptions and Notifications article should guide you through the process to subscribe to boards within the PowerSchool Community. 


A quick search will help you find the right answers. You'll see our recommended articles in your search results, featured articles, and more.  To learn more about the process to simplify the search, review the Search Tips article in the Community. 


Last month, we added our PowerSchool Ideas Portal in our PowerSchool Community where you can directly submit your enhancement requests to the PowerSchool Product teams. This feature makes sharing enhancement requests easier. Once logged in to our Community, you can visit the Ideas Portal by hovering over Contact support in the top menu and selecting PowerSchool Ideas Portal. 

You can submit and track enhancement requests that meet the unique needs of your school or district. You can upvote existing enhancement requests logged by other customers.  You can learn more about the Ideas Portal here. 


New Editor 

This month we have also updated the Editor tools within the PowerSchool Community.  These editor tools are the most common text formatting tools that can be used to better format your text when composing discussion forum posts.  To learn more about the Editor tools, review the article on how to use the editor tools to compose a message.
