What is the purpose of this tutorial?
This guide will walk you through how to set your notification preferences. We recommend that one of the first steps you take in the ParentSquare platform is to set up your notification preferences.
Step 1: Login to your ParentSquare account
Go to https://parentsquare.com/signin and sign in to your account with your email address and password.
If you have not made an account yet, please enter the email address or phone number listed in your contact record in your student’s Parent Portal account.
Step 2: Navigate to My Account
Click Your Name > My Account in the top right of the window.
Step 3: Locate the Notification Settings
Click on Notification Settings from the menu on the left.
Step 4: Choose Your Notification Settings
Choose your preferred Notification Settings for General Announcements & Messages (Off, Instant or Digest) and School Alerts (On or Off). Once you've made selections, future messaging will send based on your preferences.
Instant: This setting will send you notifications as posts, etc. are created.
Digest: This allows you to turn down the noise and receive a notification at the end of the day with links and information related to all of the content shared that day.
School Alerts: Disabling this will turn off all notifications from Irvine Unified School District via the ParentSquare platform, except emergency alerts.
Emergency Alerts: Emergency alerts cannot be disabled.
Step 5: Set Order of Preferred Contacts
If you have multiple emails or phones listed on your account, set the order of your preferred contacts to receive notifications. Notifications will only be sent to one email and one phone on your account.
