Spring Software Improvements

Beehively’s Web Services are better than ever!  Our team is celebrating today with the launch of a few great product enhancements, and we don’t want you to miss out on these improved features.

What is new with Beehively Web Services?

People Messaging: Our communication features have always been the backbone of our software and today they are even stronger.  You can now message individuals or a selection of users directly from within Beehively.  Just like with all our communication features, the system will track these messages so you know when users receive and open them.  To find out more about how to access this feature please see our support documentation here.

Custom Downloads: While all of our great pre-made downloads are still there, you now have the ability to customize the exact information you want to pull.  Looking for a birthday list for second graders, no problem! Do you want to run a search each month and download the name of parents who have an expired Driver’s License of file, use the saved search feature in conjunction with the new custom downloads to save time on these routine tasks.  For more information on how to use these new downloads please see our support article here.

Google Classroom Sync: Google Classroom integration is now available as a beta feature!  If you are interested in having your Google Classroom grades sync directly with your Beehively grade book send us an email at support@beehively.com.  More exciting things to come with Google this summer!

A Few Additional Improvements: Along with these major feature enhancements we are working every day to make small enhancements to the software.  Some additional items that were added this month include:

  • Apple Classroom downloads for Apple School Manager
  • Row and column highlighting in the grade book
  • Class averages in the grade book
  • Improved flow of announcements
  • Comment dates are now optional on report cards

Our aim is always to make our system more user friendly and efficient for your needs,  especially when it comes to communicating with parents. Let us know your thoughts and if you come across any issues not answered in our support documents, feel free to contact the Beehively support team at support@beehively.com
