ClassTag Connect Leaders and Teachers can send Announcements as phone calls to a user’s mobile or landline phone number. District Leaders can upload a pre-recorded audio file and attach it to an Announcement. Once uploaded, the system will trigger an automated phone call to all users within your district who have a phone number saved and play the recording as a call or leave it as a voice mail.
A couple of notes:
Users who only have an email address as their notification method will receive an email with the link to download the audio file.
Users who have both email address and mobile number will receive a call that will play the recording automatically.
We continue to improve this feature so we can allow users to record the message directly on the ClassTag App.
