Now you have all the component parts installed and you have a working installation of Xpressions, it's time to begin granting access to parents so that they can see the school and student data.
You should first make sure your MIS data is ready for parental access.
Preparing your MIS
See this page for more information as well as information specific to your MIS.
Once you have all the required data in your MIS, your environment is ready for parents to start using the app.
When you are ready for parents to begin accessing their children’s data on their devices you will need to let them know that the service is ready. They can log in right now to the Xpressions app using just their email address and phone number.
You can direct them to parents.groupcall.com where they can find out all they need to know including how to get the app. Have a look at our collection of marketing materials to help you rollout the service. In order to get the best experience we recommend that you start with a group (such as registration, year or known parents) at a time until you're comfortable moving to a wider audience.
When you have told parents about Xpressions you'll no doubt want to populate the data they can see about their children, so why not start by configuring SIMS to display Assessment in the app.
If you'd like to know more about how often attendance marks get updated you can read more about it here. The marks parental users see for their children will be a maximum of 92 minutes behind the school as long as all technical elements of the solution are operating correctly.
