How to Create Lists for Specific Grade Levels

Do you ever send out SchoolMessenger alerts that only pertain to a certain grade?

For example,

  • 8th Grade Dance
  • 5th Grade Play Day
  • Senior Skip Day

I am going to show you how to create a custom list for specific grade levels. This will only call the parents in that grade! :)

Step 1: Click on Broadcast Tab > Lists > Add New List

Step 3: Choose Fields > Add > Done

You can choose your school (this grabs all faculty and students.)

You can also customize it by Grade Level or other fields.

Target Recipients should be on the Both bullet, and do not touch the Guardian Category Restriction bullets.

After you see the Total number go up, please preview your list to make sure it is correct.

If correct, press Done at the bottom of your screen.

The list will automatically update when new students are enrolled.
