What is the user preferred method in messaging? Why is this useful?

Updated on May 19, 2022

Every user in Classter can select their preferred method to communicate through the platform. This is achieved through a setting in their profile called Preferred Contact Method. All users can choose if they prefer to be notified via e-mail, SMS, or internal message. They also have the choice to not receive notifications at all. (Figure 1)

This setting is being put in use when someone is trying to send a message through Classter. To send a message using this functionality you click on the message icon on the top right, then Messaging Options and User Preferred Method. (Figures 2 & 3)

You can also select this option from the new message window on the right. (Figure 4)

This setting has proven to be useful especially in cases such as where a user doesn’t want his email spammed, a relative that doesn’t know or is incapable of using the platform or a parent that doesn’t have access throughout the day to his emails or the system and wants to be notified through SMS if an important incident occurs.
