Modified on Thu, 01 Dec 2016 at 11:59 AM

  1.   At the top of your dashboard, click the module access icon > Administration > Reminders > Create Custom Reminders to open the Create Custom Reminders page.

  2. In the Reminder name field, enter the name of the event/news.

  3. Select the date the reminder must be sent.

  4. Select the reminder mode – Email and SMS.

  1. If the reminder mode is Email, enter the subject of the message, the email message, and the signature.

  2. If the reminder mode is SMS, enter the SMS text message.

  • Note: Try and keep the SMS text message within 160 characters because, if the message exceeds 160 characters, there is a possibility of the message being delivered as two separate messages. You may also be charged accordingly.


  1. If the recipients of the reminder are students, select Students as the user type, and then select the course and batch. Students of the selected batches are displayed. If you want parents also to receive the reminder, select the Parents checkbox. If you want only the parents receive the reminder, clear the Students checkbox.

  2. If the recipients of the reminder are employees, select Employees as the user type, and then select the department. Employees of the selected departments are displayed.

  1. After selecting the students/employees, click to move the users to the Selected users column.

  • Note: The total number users selected is displayed below the Selected users column. The number includes only the selected students and employees, it does not include parents.

  1. Click the Save changes button.
