I’ve been using this app for years for high school classes and clubs and it’s a very useful tool for communication between teachers and students. Teachers can send reminders to all of their students at once easily and students can privately message teachers easily as well.
The customer service is also fantastic! I had a bug with my notifications for unread messages not going away so I contacted them for help and they responded with the utmost care and attention. I appreciate them very much and I praise them for their hardworking and helpful staff.
Highly recommend this app!
As an educator, I really struggle with remind. I hate the limited characters, I have a lot of information to disseminate. There have been several times that I have not gotten notifications from Remind, important ones. I need something quick and easy, and currently I do not find Remind either of those things. Unfortunately it is the choice of my school to use Remind. So for now, I will continue to type notes in my note app, screen shot it, attach a file, and send, too many steps when I have Kindergartners in my classroom.
It’s super lame that there is a cap on character count when writing a chat message to someone, like the teacher!! There’s no counter to show where you are at, and you can’t delete messages that failed to send because they exceeded the character count!! SUPER LAME FIX IT PLEASE!! Makes reading messages a mess because old messages (the ones failed to send) and new are mixed up.
I love that I can contact parents without them having my number. But it’s too hard to get rid of contacts. I googled how to do certain things and I still have a hard time. One time signed on to hear a concert and everyone watching was then on my list. Then I couldn’t get them off.
Just downloaded the app to get in contact with my future school I signed up and they asked me to put my birth date so I did but said it was incorrect and to choose a date before 07/22/2021 and I don’t understand it at all something in wrong with this app please fix this.
The limit on words to post is a hassle. A workable hassle, but it still could be better. Also, please make it so we can post multiple pictures. That aspect alone (posting only one pic at a time) almost drives to use a different app! Other than that, I love it!!
Can’t delete unwanted notifications. Unarchived all previous classes and gone through all messages. The process should not be this difficult. Please make it possible to delete classes permanently not just archive.
I joined multiple groups, but I don’t see a way see all the messages from all groups in one list, like email does, so I can scroll through them all. I only see the option of going into each group separately.
This is a really good app for communicating within groups. However, I would like to see the ability to increase the font size. There are times I have trouble reading the small, thin font.
I have unread notifications but have searched through all messages in all conversations. They just won’t go away and the app has no way to filter for them.
