The most important part of any School ERP system are the analytics and the ease of access by multiple users of the system. Last week we discussed how you could setup your payment gateways, white-label Fedena to your institution’s name and assign multiple plugins to various institutions in your group. Most institutions function by setting up a communication with their teachers and parents via SMS notifications of various activities, ranging from attendance to event dates, payment reminders to refund of fees paid, to set this up let’s learn how to setup SMS packages in Fedena for your group of Institutions.
Create and assign SMS packages to group of Institutions
Your SMS Package can be configured in ‘SMS Setting’ option under company details of the multischool panel. On clicking ‘Create SMS Package’, the details can be entered into Fedena. SMS package details and parameter mapping details are required to go to the next step.
The SMS package details include the following :
- Package Name – Enter the name of the SMS package.
- Service Provider – Enter the name of the SMS service provider.
- Message Limit – Enter the total number of messages that can be sent. If a message limit is not provided, it will be considered as ‘Unlimited’ SMS.
- Valid Till – Select the package validity date. When the date passes the validity date, messages cannot be sent. If a date is not provided, it will be considered as ‘Lifetime’ validity.
- Character Limit – Enter the total number of characters that make up one message. If left blank, the character limit per message is taken as 160. In some cases, service providers may include a few characters of their own as part of the messages being sent, in such cases, specify the character limit accordingly.
Enter the parameter mapping details provided by the service provider. The ‘sender name’ is the name the recipients will see when they receive an SMS. If you enter a sender name and enable Sender name modification, the sender name can be changed when assigning the package to any institution. If you disable Sender name modification, the sender name cannot be changed.
After you have entered all the details, click the Create button. You can assign this package to the institution by clicking on the option ‘Add a school’.
This count will now be reflected in the institution’s login.
That’s how easy setting up your SMS for your group of institutions is. Now let’s get into the analytics Fedena School ERP system provides.
