Share Translated Parent Notices Easily with Your Colleagues (New Feature Alert)

    

If you have ever been asked by a colleague to help him or her sign up for a TransACT Parent Notices account, you will appreciate this new feature. 

There are two types of users in Parent Notices: 

  • Administrators (the account owner), i.e. your federal programs director, director of curriculum, or the person responsible for training on your district's Parent Notices account 
  • Basic Users (all other users). i.e. Teachers, EL Coordinators, Nurses, and other staff at your district responsible for communicating with parents and families

Now, regardless of your user type in your district's TransACT Parent Notices account, you will now be able to add additional users. There is no cap for users in a district, and we encourage you to share this resource with your peers. Please be aware that if you are a basic user, you are only permitted to add additional basic users to your district's account. Here's how it's done: 

  • Basic users can now find a “New User” feature by hovering over the “My Account” tab on the top right of their screen once they have logged in
  • By clicking on the “New User” link, basic users can now add other colleagues with a valid school district email address as basic users to the district’s TransACT account

While TransACT account administrators have always have the ability to add new users to their district's account, basic users have not previously had this option. We would like to thank all of our customers for their suggestions and recommendations that made this a reality for all of our clients. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact us at 425.977.2100, Option 3 or email at support@transact.com.
