remind is a pretty good app. it's easy for teachers to communicate and all that and i like how it's easy to get info quickly.
however i do have some problems against this app....
one, there's no dark mode, so my retinas are constantly assaulted. i don't like actually opening the app anymore because of this lol. i don't even know if it's actually an option on this app, but if it is, it's REALLY hard to find the setting to turn on dark mode.
two, you can't delete conversations like you can in the regular messages app. i know it's different than imessage, but itd be nice to be able to delete conversations.
three, i also get texts on the imessage app along with remind messages. so now there's double the notifications clogging up my phone. i don't know how to turn it off. not sure if blocking the numbers would turn it off, but i don't want to risk not getting remind messages either.
other than that, it's a great way of communicating without teachers having to be potentially weird and getting your phone number.
Remind gives me 20+ notifications for unread messages that aren’t there. This is extremely detrimental as, since many of my classes rely heavily on remind, it’s hard to tell whether I should check my remind when it gives me 20+ ghost notifications. I’ve checked their FAQ and have checked the All Classes tab and, despite the problem existing on both browser and iOS, I’ve updated and reinstalled Remind multiple times. I’ve sent Remind a request a few days ago and the lack of a response is disappointing. I wish I could use a different software but the insistence of my teachers to use this faulty app makes catching up with schoolwork a real difficulty, especially since some teachers have started using Remind as an avenue for last minute changes to assignments,
The app was working fine like a charm, until a recent update made it inaccessible to my phone. In summary, my phone can't update the software as it is stuck on iOS12, the app shows me a notification that I have to update (and I don't have the option to close it to access my classes), and even if I hit "update", my phone won't allow me to as its minimum requirement is iOS13. This is a real issue, especially when I'm trying to manage messages for my club.
It’s the fastest and easiest way to connect my church family. Especially when it comes to emergency prayer for everyone and friends of each person that attends our church. I also use the school remind to monitor all the classes for my granddaughter who is in the 6th grade. My only problem is on the remind I use for the church I can only use 75 letters. At times I have to send 2 or 3 to cover the message. This a blessing app for the church and the people.
I honestly dont know what I did before remind! I love being able to communicate directly with the students and being able to schedule texts etc.
But please add the feature for a teacher to be able to correct a student’s name. So many kids do First name last initial, or 2 first names so they dont alphabetize correctly. With 180+ students, it’s a lot of management to chase the kids to fix it - I wish I could just do it myself and be done!
I’ve used Remind for years and have never had a problem. Over the past couple of months, they’ve removed my number or email for no reason. I contact tech support, they help me and then it happens again. This last time, they not only removed my number but merged my account with someone else’s account. Not sure what’s going on, but I hope they get this worked out soon. I don’t want to miss any important communications.
This app was recommended to me by my teacher friends, but it doesn’t work for me and my teacher friends can’t get it to work correctly for me either. It has waited so much of my time trying to get it to work. I have reached out to The Remind App people and they have not helped me. I wish so badly that this app would work but instead all I’ve gotten is a headache. 😔sigh
You can’t see which student goes with the parents’ usernames/profile names. When they send a message, unless you have it memorized, you can’t tell which student you have goes with that profile. This feature needs to be added when you tap on the parent’s profile and it needs to display the student’s name with the matching guardian in the list of messages.
I have three kids whose teachers use this app but the three lines on the left that open the menu keep disappearing after one or two uses, taking away the ability to switch between my kids’ teachers. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app and the problem persists. Unable to use the app as it currently is. Pick a favorite kid I guess 🤷♀️
I keep getting a notification alert of messages on the app, but when I click on them there is nothing new. It won’t clear out. Very annoying to constantly see I have 2 notifications but there is nothing there. Plus, how do you erase old messages? I don’t need to see past messages from my now 3rd graders kindergarten teacher
