As a parent or student How do I get reminders from PS calendar on the mobile app?

The only notification options (if allowed by the school) are for attendance and changes in the current grade.

Hey @kollas

 

Thank you for posting on our PowerSchool Community!

 

As @DanM3 said, the PowerSchool mobile app gives parents and students instant access to information they need to stay up-to-date on student grades, performance, and attendance and receive real-time push notifications with updates about grades, scores, attendance, assignments, teacher comments, daily bulletins, schedules, and fee transactions. 

 

I have provided the steps below that will guide you through making sure push notifications on your son's mobile device has been enabled: 

 

  1. Log into the PowerSchool App
  2. Click the Menu button
  3. Click the Settings button
  4. Click Notifications
  5. Check the boxes for the types of notifications you want to receive
  6. Submit the page

Fell free to get back to us if you have any further queries.

@ElstonS I don't think this information is correct. The only two push notifications (if allowed by the school) are attendance and grade change. You cannot "receive real-time push notifications with updates about grades, scores, attendance, assignments, teacher comments, daily bulletins, schedules, and fee transactions." Some of these parents can set to receive via email but not push notification on the app.

 

Also, the steps outlined to turn on notifications are incorrect. The correct steps are:

 

  1. Log into the PowerSchool App
  2. Click the More button (bottom right hand corner)
  3. Cliick on Account link
  4. Click Notifications
  5. Turn on the types of notifications you want to receive (slide to green)

So I set up a parent to recieve emails for grades and attendence.  They have not recieved any.  We even checked the daily email, and still nothing.  Is there some settings in the administrative level that I can check to see if our system is preventing the email from going out?  We are new to Power School SIS and are trying to figure things out.

@jandrade Yes there is an admin setting, but since this is forum is open to parents and student users I prefer not to spell out the details here.
