I love the simplicity of the program, but the BEST part of Gradelink is the support staff. Their tech support and sales folks are helpful and are able to work with you in every situation. I've been blessed by their speed and consideration.

The historical grades are easy to look up for students. We have also created our own Grad progress screen to view students's progress along the way. The attendance and demographics pages are easy to navigate and find what I need. I guess the overall program...

Skyward support is the best I've ever encountered in a software product. From quick, live chats, to longer support service tickets, they have gone above and beyond with quality of service and quick resolutions to my questions and issues.

The software is dated looking and pretty limited in its ability. Very little customization available.

I can't think of anything that I didn't like. I feel like the product was easy to use.

I don't like how clunky it is. It is very difficult to move between frames and it is not visually appealing (and does not use visually stimulating colors, etc. to make navigation easier.
