Staff can send and receive messages to other staff from both the website and the app. Staff will need to have an email address in their staff profile and be able to login in order to receive messages.
Permission settings for staff to staff messages can also be adjusted from the staff profiles under My School > Staff. The permissions can be set to:
- No Access - Staff will not even see the envelope icon in the upper right, and will not be able to send or receive messages,
- Read Only - Staff will only be able to receive messages but not respond or compose new messages, or
- Full Access - Staff is able to receive and send messages.
