    Please add the checkbox options:

    • A checkbox for "Also send to parents"
    • A checkbox for "ONLY send to parents"

     

    Currently, if you want to send a message to students and parents of a specific group of students, as recipients for broadcast notifications, the only options available are to set up a message just to the group of students or check the box to send to parents, which then ONLY sends the message to parents. So 2 messages then have to be set up and sent, a message to the group of specific students, and a second message to only the parents of the specific group of students.

     

    It is cumbersome to create a group of students and a corresponding group of parents because many times, the parents and children do not share the same name. The same is true for creating a single group that contains both parents and students.

     

    Furthermore, if students are deleted from the student group, trying to find the parents to delete from a corresponding parent group is cumbersome and time intensive, as parents may not have the same last names. The same is true for a single group containing both students and parents.
