There are two ways to quickly add students. One way is to have the students add themselves. After clicking on the desired class from the left hand side of the screen, click “Members” from the top middle of the screen. Here you will find a six character code students can use to directly sign up and follow your class. You may also choose to input your students using their email addresses from the“Add Students” button located further down the screen.

Yes, we have had teachers add messages / reminders in the "comments" section of a task to send instant notifications. For example, in ClassOwl if you have a quiz with due date Fri, Nov 15, you could write in the comment (don't forget to read Chapter 1). They would all access the notification via push / email as well as on the planner.
