Nope! Your subscription includes unlimited texts at no extra charge.
How do automated parent phone calls work?
Automated phone calls are sent using a top-tier technology that converts your typed message to voice, then delivers it directly to parents on their cell phone or landline. You can choose whether to contact every parent or a selected group.
How does the email management system work?
Our powerful email management system puts the main school account, class/teacher accounts, and parent replies all in one place. You can even send sophisticated, beautifully designed HTML emails with your school logo, pictures, and more. Communicate with all, some, or individual parents instantly from any device.
How do I remove a child’s registration once they leave the school?
There are two easy ways to do this:
- Deactivate the account: If a child leaves the school early, simply make the child’s account inactive and no more communication will be sent for that child.
- Enter class expiration dates: Class and group communication will automatically end for all enrolled families after the selected date.
How do parents receive messages and notifications?
Based on the nature of the message, Wimlo smartly chooses the best channels for delivery. In emergency and time-sensitive cases, parents receive text messages and automated direct phone calls. Everyday school news can be sent via email and the parents’ portal. Updates in the portal are announced directly within the app and via email or push notifications.
I am a school admin/owner. What if I don’t like a feature?
Wimlo is designed to be flexible to meet the real needs of schools. Nearly all features can be turned on or off at will--for example, if you’d prefer not to let parents comment on posts, just turn that feature off.
How can I customize my school account?
You can select a profile picture, school icon, and theme color that will display in the parents’ portal and the emails you send.
How can I make sure teachers are sharing appropriate messages?
The powerful administrative console allows you to view and control all school communication. You can choose to review teachers’ posts from your computer or smartphone, then instantly approve or deny them for sharing. If you don’t feel you need this feature, you can turn it off and allow all posts to go live automatically.
Do I have access to all class email accounts?
Yes. You can view, send, and receive emails for all accounts in one central dashboard, using your computer, iPad, iPhone, or Android device for instant access anywhere.
Does my staff need to be computer savvy to use WithMyLittleOne?
We know how busy school teachers and administrators are, so we designed Wimlo with simplicity in mind. If the staff is familiar with the general use of computers or smartphones, they already have all the skills they need. Should you need help with anything, our training materials and customer support professionals are here to walk you through it.
What are the benefits of the parents’ portal?
Our state-of-the-art parents’ portal allows you to develop a vibrant online school community, where parents can engage with their teachers and each other in a social environment. The portal allows parents to post items in the school marketplace, participate in a discussion, comment, get notified of updates, and more.
- View and share pictures, announcements, and videos
- Buy, sell, and trade children’s items with other parents
- Contribute to fundraisers with instant donations and social sharing
The “Love It!” package allows you to place a login button on your website so parents can access this private school community right from your school’s website!
How do I get parents to register for the portal?
Simply invite them to create an account through one of these methods:
- Email: Send easy-to-follow instructions right to their inbox.
- Text: Parents receive an SMS invitation and can answer the registration questions via text.
- Print: Download a printable flyer to hand out to parents.
The account creation process is simple and will take each parent less than two minutes.
Remember, parents don’t need an account for you to start communicating with them--you can always reach them via text, email, and phone even if they choose not to register.
What if some parents don’t want to register?
Parents are not required to create an account in order for you to communicate with them. All parents will receive your emails, text messages, and automated direct phone calls to their cell phone or landline. Our “Love It!” package enables you to create an online school community in addition to these things--but parents are always free to choose whether they want to participate.
