There may be a few easy-to-solve reasons why your phone may not be receiving the alerts from the Skool Loop App:
- If you are in the app when the notice is sent in real time, the alert may not come as a notification on the basis that you have already accessed the required school communication while browsing.
- If the app or phone is not up to date the phone’s current software may not be able to process a notification request. Check the settings of your phone for any required software updates.
- You may have phone notifications switched off. To fix this go into phone settings – Apps/notifications – and choose to allow
- The phone may be too old. Some phones such as the iPhone 5 are now too old to receive push notifications as the software that the app runs on is newer than what is available for that phone.
- How do I join a group in notices to receive real time alerts. – Tap the settings tile on your school app and select subscribe to groups, select groups that relate to your child. If a group is password protected, please refer to your school for access.
- By checking the ‘Debug’ function in the setting tile of the Skool Loop app, you will see your current school communication groups, instant notification permissions and if app updates are required.
The app sync’s with your phones ‘native calendar’ allowing you to see both school and personal events, the purpose of this is for parents to see potential clashes in their diary (only you can see your personal events). You may notice that your personal events are shown with a Blue/Purple dot and your school events are a Red/Pink dot. You are able to turn this off in the permissions section of your phone settings.
