Tapestry Newsletter 'workaround'


Recommended Posts

At the moment Tapestry does not have a 'Newsletter' function. This is something we are looking to do in the future. In the meantime you can achieve something similar like this:

Add a 'child' called 'newsletters' and attach all the parents to it. Then you can upload news, information and pictures to that 'child' and then send it to all the parents simultaneously. At the end of the year you can print out or save this 'journal' as a particular year - this would make a great example to show Ofsted of how you are keeping in touch and communicating with parents. Don't forget to remind parents that their responses to the 'newsletter' child would not be private! The disable comments function would not work for this 'newsletter' child. That function works only if there is more than one child attached to an observation and so there is a mix of relatives who should not see comments about each other's children. The only way round this is to have another 'blank' child called 'block comments' that you always attach to the 'newsletter' child so that Tapestry is 'tricked' into thinking there are multiple children and so blocks replies.
