Hi,

Just wondering if there has been any progress on the newsletter function that was suggested as a possibilty a few months ago? We tried having a false child and adding all parents but we had complaints from parents that they could see each others names. Is this going to happen soon?

Thanks

I would love to hear about this. I currently just write a weekly catch up on an observation page and tick all children onto it.

Hi Womble,

The feature is still in development, but I have added you to the list of people to contact when we have further announcements.

If any other users would like to be contacted about this, please reply as such to this thread, and we will review the thread when this is ready, or alternatively send an email to customer.service@eyfs.info.

Hi Womble 

We do already publish our newsletters using an alias child, but in the settings, we have set them so parents cannot see each other so works fine they all get the news but cannot see the other parent names? We also enter parents who like the news into a draw for 2 hrs free child care encourages them to read the newsletter and we can monitor how many are ? Reading it.

I would love to be able to do this.  Currently we send home a paper newsletter but I would like to be able to put it on Tapestry as well.  Currently I add messages for all parents as observations for everyone (FS2 setting) which hasn't been an issue so far.  I wondered if it would be possible to have the option of uploading a PDF document in media as I could attach current newsletters for parents to read rather than copying and pasting?

Hi Ashleigh7,

Welcome to the forum!

We will update this thread with any news regarding sending newsletters through Tapestry to keep you informed.

Thanks for your suggestion about being able to add attachments, I will pass this along so this can be discussed with the rest of the team. :)

Oh me too.

I email a weekly newsletter but not sure how many parents actulla look at it. But I can see when they access Tapestry so it would be brilliant new feature.

I would really like to hear about an update on this.. I added my newsletter as an observation yesterday for all children but this sounds a much clearer way of doing it. An option to add a file instead of photo would also be fab 😀

Hi 

I would also love to hear about this function, the PDF upload would be amazing as we are trying to get away from printing things out and as the majority of parents access Tapestry this would be a tool we would use a lot! 

Best wishes,

Jo
