"Useful"

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is for parents to sign up for. It makes it easy to send messages to my parents without them having my cell number. I like that you can upload pictures as well. My school as a whoe uses it to send out text messages to parents of important reminders or events with the school. Several of the other teachers use it to communicate with our parents. You can set up seperate groups, so if you have multiple classes, you can message the parents in that specific class. It will also let you message an individual user.

What do you dislike?

There isn't really anything I dislike about the app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great way to communicate with your parents without giving out your cell number. It works much like a message app, incuding the ability to send pictures. Parents can respond with likes to your pictures as wel.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Parent communication. Easy to use.

What Classroom Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great for teachers, students, and parents"

What do you like best?

I was formally a high school teacher and used Remind to communicate anonymously with my students. I found it much easier to quickly send a Remind message with updates about assignments, homework, etc. At parent-teacher conferences, I had printed out invitations for my parents to sign up for Remind as well, so they could contact me as well as get my class announcements. Students would reach out to me during my designated "office hours" through the app if they needed help with their homework or had a general classroom question. I also liked that it would translate messages in Spanish to my parents who needed it, and it only required me to click a button to translate my message.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the translating option would send or receive in "broken" English when translating from Spanish. But it was not horrible, and I was able to determine what the main idea of the message was without too much issue.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I currently am in school leadership and use Remind to send messages to my teaching staff which I find much easier and more efficient than email.

"Kahoot from Teacher"

What do you like best?

The best thing about this product is that it makes communication faster and easier, and it is also safe and professional. Teachers can communicate reminders about assignments or homework to students without exposing personal phone numbers, but also has the benefit of acting like a "text message" for faster response and communication. Also, this works between professionals and for big group send out information, like staff announcements. You have the options to turn off replies, so that students cannot reply and can just receive the reminders like a text.

What do you dislike?

Because it works like text messaging, there seems to be issues with phone carriers and if certain people receive these messages.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure that you play around with the account to make sure you have the settings how you want. For example, make sure that you decide if want to allow replies or no replies from students. This setting can be changed, but I recommend navigating all settings first.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows professionals to communicate professionally and protecting privacy of numbers. It also saves time because more people are able to receive messages sooner, which increase productivity and communication.

"Clever easy way to embed communication with what everyone already use - a phone!"

What do you like best?

It is a non-intrusive solution for communications. Everyone has a phone - smart or not - and it can easily get connected in the communication. You can easily manage the announcements and communications with anyone.

What do you dislike?

It is not really a dislike but I will like a solution that did not involve the app to send announcements just from my phone. For example, using some sort of code it can automatically send the announcement to all people in the group.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The key with remind.com is that is easy to use and communicate with others. Since it already uses your phone, there is no real excuse not to be communicated anymore.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used remind.com as a director of a club and the main problem was to keep everyone informed. I have been using facebook and other social apps trying to do this but it is not that effective. With this application, I can easily create groups, organize them, and send announcements.

"review for remind"

What do you like best?

Remind does an amazing job in sending reminders for my sessions for biology automatically. These help me market my sessions well.

The remind app works well with both android and iOS and my students have never had complains about notification problems with it either.

As an administrator, it is also easy for me to keep track of the messages I sent, create to-do lists and just be organized in general.

It also allows you to create separate class sections which is great!

What do you dislike?

There is not much that I dislike about Remind 101 because of its high functionalities. However, the one thing that I absolutely hate about it is that the messages are only one way, so if some of my students have questions or queries, they have to send out mass emails or spam my email to get their doubts clarified. This is not good when you conduct tutoring sessions because students come up with a lot of questions even after a session and Remind cannot help me on that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is great for getting notification but not for 2-way chatting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it to market my tutoring and supplemental instruction sessions for biology for my job. I have realized that it is good for one way messaging and admin use.

"Great Communication Base"

What do you like best?

It is a great method of communication between educators and students alike. As someone who is an educator but not a teacher in a school, it's a great in between platform that I can use to communicate both with my students and with their teachers.

What do you dislike?

I do not think that I have use the app enough to dislike anything quite yet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's truly a great platform to use as an educator. The ease of communication is great. You can easily set up classrooms and set up your own system of organization. It allows customization that you can use to suit your needs for the app.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I usually use e-mail to communicate but Remind is a set platform that is similarly set up to a social media messaging system. The interface is easy enough to use. The benefits of this app are great in that it is a refreshing and professional platform that is easy to use but it is a great alternative to traditional communication such as e-mail.

"Great tool for easy teacher/parent communication. "

What do you like best?

Remind is very easy to use, especially with the iPhone app. I like that parents can sign up to get text message reminders and there does not need to be an exchange of phone numbers. It's easy to send a message to the entire class to remind them about anything from field trips to quizzes.

What do you dislike?

One of my favorite features of Remind was that parents could not reply as the text message is sent from the app, but some parents figured out that they can download the app and message me directly that way. I did, however, find out that messaging can be turned off--the only issue is I can't do that now as parents will realize I turned it off on them!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Remind is a great way to increase communication with parents in a quick and secure manner. It's user friendly, free, and has been an invaluable tool as a teacher. I highly recommend it for teachers seeking increased parent/teacher communication.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rather than send out an email that most parents won't read, I can send a quick text reminder that will actually be seen by my students' parents. It makes sending reminders quick and painless. I often set an alarm on my phone to send reminders; when I see it, I am able to quickly send the message, no matter where I am, right from my phone.

"Remind 101 is a game changer for contacting students!"

What do you like best?

I like that I can have different groups for different classes or extra-curricular activities I run. I also like that I can contact individual students within the whole group, or the entire group. I also like the support that messages can come directly to my phone.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that I have to rely on my students to add the group in order for it to work. I wish there was a way that once they are associated with my school, I could manually add them to the group, or that if I had their phone numbers, I could also manually add them to the group.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a group of students you need to register, make them sign up right in front of you! Either that, or have some valuable piece of information included in your first message!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This has been a nice way to send push notifications to many students, quickly. It works more efficiently than some other educational sites we have access to.

"Excellent for K-12, Language Learners, and Adult Education "

What do you like best?

This app is extraordinarily simple to use. My students of all levels of language and tech-savviness are able to get Remind on their phones. I use the app to make announcements (we're having a potluck in class today!) and to share photos of the exciting things we do in class with those who weren't there. Likewise, my students use Remind to let me know if they're sick, and to check in about the details of their assignments. We're able to do do all of this without sharing phone numbers. I love it!

What do you dislike?

I honestly have no negative thoughts about this application. It just works and they're always making it better.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Many students don't have or know how to use email, but they are comfortable using their phones. I am uncomfortable sharing my phone number with students, but with Remind I can open up the lines of communication while protecting my privacy.

"Easy, intuitive, and best of all FREE!"

What do you like best?

What I love about Remind is that it keeps me connected to my students outside the classroom. I teach distance learning and it's difficult to maintain contact with so many students. Remind makes it easy for me to keep a personal touch with great efficiency.

What do you dislike?

The web-based platform has improved a lot over the years, but it still leaves something to be desired. Although, it's simplicity is perhaps what makes it so intuitive and easy to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Remind is so easy to try, you'd be silly not to see if it meets your communication needs. The iOS app alone makes it worth it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have struggled to maintain frequent communication with my distance learning students because phone calls are so out-dated for the population I serve. Being able to text my students has increased our dialogue, which I anticipate will increase their work completion!

"Using Remind is so easy!"

What do you like best?

It is very easy to communicate through Remind. I think one of the best features is that it allows you to set reminders both for other people and for yourself, for any particular task. As an Academic Tutor and a student as well, I find it very easy to use it both as a student and a tutor, without having to send my phone number to anyone.

What do you dislike?

The fact that you cannot reply through Remind is very restricting for a lot of purposes. The communication is only one way. Other than that, there isn't much to dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It works great on iphone and android both, so that's amazing!!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it to communicate with my students and get notified about the course related content my professors post. It makes my task of keeping up with things pretty easy.

"Excellent Texting App"

What do you like best?

Ability to reach all my students instantly and with a consistent message. Since kids have their phones with them at all times, you know you are reaching them. You can also create as many 'groups' as you want, which helps to keep you organized with who you want to reach

What do you dislike?

I wish there was no character limit for your messages, ala Twitter. Also, i'm not sure if it notifies you when people leave your group

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great way to keep in touch with our Youth Group. Kids always have their phones with them so they can't say they didn't get my messages!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to reach all in my group at the same time. Also, you have the ability to allow or disallow replies which can keep the conversations 'clean' if you so choose.

"Remind Your Students, Remind Your Coworkers"

What do you like best?

Remind is a simple tool that allows you to set up a group to send "a remind" to. A remind is much like an email blast or a text to a group, in that it sends the same message to a set group of people. Even better it allows you to receive messages back, without the group knowing your phone number. Ideal for teachers, you can send out a remind to remind the class of tests, project due dates, and homework. And if anyone has any questions they can send it back to you no problem.

What do you dislike?

Some students try to take advantage of remind and send silly things back to you, and there's only a few things you can do. You can talk to them face to face and ask them to quit, and if they don't the only in app option is to remove them. The ideal solution in my opinion would be a one way communication channel with that student, where they can receive reminds, but not respond.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The biggest thing to consider with remind is that students can get a hold of you during your free time. You can turn off notifications, but that would almost defeat the point. Just remember that just because you CAN be accessible 24/7, you don't have to be, take some time for yourself.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Remind doesn't eliminate people saying "I forgot" but it makes it less of an issue and even better, it shifts the blame forgetting more onto the student. While it seems to add some responsibility to the teacher to remind, I'm okay with that.

"Easy way to communicate with families and students!"

What do you like best?

I like that I can not only access this from my computer, but also from my phone. It is a fantastic way to communicate with all in an organization or individual parents. It is a secure, private way to communicate quickly in a technology focused words.

What do you dislike?

I don't have any complaints or dislikes at this time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use and FREE! It's hard to complain about a free program that allows you to communicate this easily. You can set up various classes and lists and message everyone individually or together. You can also schedule messages to be sent in the future.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communication! Sometimes it is hard to reach parents who don't have time to answer phone calls or the means to answer e-mails all the time. Texting parents creates an easy way to give quick messages and a way for parents to respond as quickly as possible.

"Great Tool, Limited Admin"

What do you like best?

I love the ability to quickly send text reminders to various groups. Inputting is relatively easy and the system is pretty user friendly. It cuts down on a lot of time spent texting reminders.

What do you dislike?

The inability to edit names and basic user info is maddening. Any other user in any other organization can add wrong information linked to the same person’s cell phone number and then anyone in any organization will be stuck with that incorrect information until you contact support and have them fix the issue. Many times, they won’t fix the issue unless the user themselves submits a request for support. This is VERY unhelpful and can take up to 3 days to get a response. As an admin of our organization’s account, I have no power to make any needed changes to any account without contacting support.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you are ok with waiting for support and be sure to input information correctly the first time. Any errors in input will cost you days of time to get corrected. It can end up being a huge hassle on the admin side of the program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It saves time texting many different users. Most users receive text messages quicker and more effectively than via email or other communication methods. I have found that info is more clearly communicated and easily received via this platform than others we have tried. It has definitely been a time saver!

"Easy way to communicate "

What do you like best?

This platform is a great way to communicate with students and is easy to use. I can easily send out reminders of upcoming tests, quizzes, and projects within seconds. Since most students rely on text messages it is the perfect option for me.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that there is a character limit per each text. If it goes over the limit it has to split the text message into multiple texts.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Remind works well at sending out mass texts to all faculty and staff (not just students). This way we can easily communicate with staff members without having to be at a computer and send an email.

"My favorite communication tool"

What do you like best?

The latest advance that allows students to message back, but still keeps individual contact numbers confidential. That was a major step forward for Remind.

What do you dislike?

Nothing. I have absolutely nothing that I can put in a "dislike" column about this product. I am a big fan. Use it daily. Have the app on my phone.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it to anyone in the education field. Even at the Elementary level, when students do not yet have phones, teachers could use remind to contact parents about upcoming events. In the secondary and college levels, Remind is indispensable. Really, I cannot believe that I used to teach without it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communication with students for classes and after school activities. The ability to quickly and easily contact all in one fell swoop is awesome.

"Great way to reach anyone!"

What do you like best?

Almost everyone I know has some sort of smartphone so why not create an app that texts you about your child's upcoming field trip or if tomorrow is a surprise jeans day, all the teacher's know what I am talking about haha. I love that I can reach my audience with the click of a button and know that because so many people are mobile phone users, they received my message. I love that you can see past messages and I love that you can add different classes!

What do you dislike?

The interface is nice but a little boxy. Honestly, though it's nothing to really be bothered by. It

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this product because it's a very fast and simple way to reach people. Most people have their cell phone on them at all times and for that reason, Remind is a very valuable way to reach everyone. It takes a few minutes to connect with someone and they get updates or important information whenever you need them too.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am reaching people in the click of a button, on a device they likely have in their possession at all times. There is nothing quicker or more direct than that.

"Great tool for Student Contact"

What do you like best?

I like that this service allows for quick, direct communication with students and parents. I can contact entire classes at one time, or send individual reminders. It’s easily accessible on my phone, so it hardly takes any time to access or send a message. I like that the teacher can establish “office hours” so students can know when the teacher can receive/answer messages and when he/she is unavailable.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that there is a character limit for what can be sent. Sometimes I have a little more to say than can fit into one remind message. It is also hard to descipher how to fix a sending error, if one occurs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it if your students use their smart phones frequently outside of school. It has been helpful in my classroom when students have an assignment due especially after a long weekend or break.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Direct and easy student contact. This helps student organization and preparedness, and provides an easy method of communication for students and teachers after school hours should any relevant school questions arise.

"Remind 101 Review"

What do you like best?

It helps teachers and coaches keep players, parents, and students up to date and allows easy communication via tools that folks use most (phones). It's a great way to get out last minute info, or share reminders. It is a great tool for our Carrer development center because we are able to send updates on students' phone without them using the internet which is really helpful.

What do you dislike?

Students cannot unsubscribe themselves, and importing contacts is slow. I wish that the texts could come from my personal number in this case. But. other than that it works great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A big competitor to apps like GroupMe but if you need something which is easy to use and send text messages, this is the way to go.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it at my job to send out reminders to students about potential appointments they might have or if we are hosting a seminar or an event at the Career Development center.

"Remind 101 Review"

What do you like best?

Remind 101 has helped me a lot in keeping track of my mentees involvement and progress in getting more students in their tutoring sessions. The main thing which makes it better then apps like GroupMe is that students can get texts from their tutors on their phones without downloading the app or connecting to the internet.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, it gets hard for students especially with Android phones to get alerts. This minor bug definitely needs to be fixed. Also, my mentees have told me that remind sometimes lags and that some students even they signed up for it were not getting the updates. Needs to be fixed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Will suit you if you have people you need to send reminders to free of cost and in their messages rather than any online source.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it with my mentees so that they can use these in their sessions to remind students about any updates about their tutoring sessions or any time changes.

Remind is a good place to post announcements of the classes, upcoming assignments, and tests. It is easy to use and set up. I like how the messages are one ended, which is a good thing if you are an administrator.

The app is really good and efficient as well!

It lags a lot at times and does not beat other messaging apps like GroupMe and so on. It would be great if they can include more features.

"Remind makes connecting with parents and student a breeze"

What do you like best?

Remind allows you to connect with students and parents via text and email without sharing a ton of personal information. So many students are glued to their phones so this allows people to use that to their advantage! The chat function is helpful, although one of the two districts I have worked in did not allow its use.

What do you dislike?

Some districts take issue with the chat feature. Opening the door to cell phone use can create a classroom management issue for some. Also, there can be some disparity for students/parents who do not have access to a cell phone or the internet consistently.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking to easily communicate with a group this is the way to do it. It is especially handy for working with secondary students.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is a quick and easy way to push out messages. The fact that you can access it via an app on a mobile device is incredibly helpful!

"Easy, direct communication"

What do you like best?

That I am able to reach a large group instantly in a way that the recipients will actually see and read. The ability for recipients to "like" a post does help to know that the message did go through and it being read by the recipients. Also, the lack of two way communication makes parents feel that their privacy is being respected, as well as do I, as a classroom teacher. I don't always feel comfortable handing out my personal contact information, and i know the parents often feel the same, but this tool allows for us to both use our personal devices but maintain privacy.

What do you dislike?

That I have to be brief and have a character limit. Also, that there isn't room in the message for a standard "signature" with additional contact information.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is not two-way communication using remind; that protects the privacy of the users, but can feel limiting if a recipient has additional questions.There is the ability for recipients to "respond" the the message with a "like" signaling to the sender that the message was received. Also, your messages must be brief and to the point- this feature does ensure that the messages will be read in their entirety, however, can lead to confusion if the message is too succinct and recipients don't know how to reach out for additional information.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reaching families quickly with important reminders. Not every family will check an email in a timely manner, but almost everyone checks a text message immediately.

"Easy way for teachers and parents to communicate"

What do you like best?

The best thing about the Remind app is that parents can sign up for alerts from multiple teachers, clubs, and the administration all in one app. They can communicate back directly with the staff without having to exchange personal cell numbers, wait for emails to be answered or try to catch a teacher when they aren't mid-class. It is also very convenient to not have to be using a computer to access.

What do you dislike?

The sign up process is a little confusing for parents as they have to have the app on their phone, have a randomly-generated alpha-numeric code for each specific teacher and when they don't want to be included in that teacher's list, they have to go in and manually unsubscribe.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's been really nice to have a 'one stop shop' place to quickly and easily be able to communicate with parents, without having to give out phone and email information, and without requiring computer access.

"Amazing hassle-free option for contacting student groups!"

What do you like best?

Easy to set up and sign up students into the system. Very easy to send messages. to participants. Privacy of staff and student's personal contact information is comforting.

What do you dislike?

Sending messages to subgroups of the larger group/class are limited to 9 people or less. Would be great if that number were higher. A message sent to a group of 12 requires 2 message groups (9 and 3)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Students are not reading emails regularly, but they WILL check their phone's text messages. Remind gets your message heard by your students. Additionally, users can message students without sharing or requesting personal phone numbers in the process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Until telepathy is perfected, contacting students via text message is ideal to get your message heard. Students will read the message and have the ability to interact with the message's sender without revealing personal phone numbers in the process.

"Remind Makes Things Easy"

What do you like best?

Remind is very simple and easy to use for organizing events for large groups of people.

What do you dislike?

The app can take a little while to download, so you need to plan ahead to use it.

Very user friendly and easy to implement via text to join. You don't have to have the app, and can easily use for all ages.

Renaming people within the group has to be done by the person, I cannot take care of it on my end.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for educators! Keep your personal information private but connect with parents using text message!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been able to connect with my students and their parents easily and in a method that is efficient. I also know that they received and saw the message on their end.

"Digital notes for the busy parent."

What do you like best?

We all know that children are not reliable with communicating information from school to home. This is where Remind becomes very helpful. remind has an online platform, text, and an app. It allows its users to sign up with multiple teachers at one time. The software is easy to use and has very little downtime since I start using it almost a year ago. Additionally, the app, as well as the online platform, allows two way communication. I can ask questions about an event without calling the school or questioning my son.

What do you dislike?

He software is just basic. Imagining a digital note that comes to your phone or email. While it doesn't have all the bell and whistles it serves it purpose.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since people are always on their phones, Remind gives its users a digital note of events and activities happening in and around the school. While notes may get lost or kids may forget a message, Remind is a constant helper in staying abreast of school involvement.

"Safe, Secure Messaging"

What do you like best?

A safe and reliable method of contacting students and parents, i have used remind for years now. I appreciate the way it has transformed from generalized messaging to more personalized messaging. If i am ever grading and need to contact a student about an assignment, i can rest assured that contact is happening via a safe venue.

What do you dislike?

I am continuing to wait on a feature that would allow you to upload small videos. :)

Recommendations to others considering the product

No hesitation in recommending to others

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Just generalized one on one communication is made simpler. Parents also love the ease of communication.

"Effective Group Communication"

What do you like best?

Remind is a helpful in communicating with large groups, we can all respond quickly via text, email, or through the app. Signing up is also a breeze. The app is also user friendly.

What do you dislike?

It would be good if when we sent messages that our name would show up by the message or our initials at least.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mass communication with groups whose individuals are spread out across the country. It is possible to “meet” up anywhere and get quick bits of information to large groups.

"Remind is a great communication tool!"

What do you like best?

I use the Remind app constantly to communicate with the parents or families of my students. It is safe and allows me to send text messages without revealing my personal cell phone number. I can send both pictures and text easily, and parents seem to appreciate this mode of communication.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, there is nothing I dislike about Remind, except possibly the number of emails they send me when I am not using the app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would encourage every teacher or leader of a group to try this app. It really makes life easier and is received well by others.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This has solved the issue of knowing how best to communicate with families, since they do not often respond to emails and it is not ideal to share a person cell phone number.

"A great way to connect with students, athletes, and parents!"

What do you like best?

the best part of Remind is the ability to communicate with students, athletes, and parents effectively while also maintaining a level of privacy. The features that are great for the software is how I can send out whole group notifications or private messages to individuals, without them ever having my personal cell or me have their phone number.

What do you dislike?

When using it connected with your phone as text messaging, I wish the name would be attached with the number, just like it is when you open the app or the website platform. Instead it is often a random phone number, and I don't always want to put them into my contacts, knowing that next year or the following season I won't have the same students/athletes/parents.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend using Remind for anyone who needs to contact a group whether it is a class of students, a community get together, or even a sports team for coaches. It creates a very easy way to communicate that is safe and private.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This has helped me solve communication problems with parents, and it has greatly cut down on emails from students and parents about certain school or team related questions.

"Remind: more options than before"

What do you like best?

Remind (formerly called Remind 101) is an easy and safe way to contact students. You can send out text messages en masse to your entire class. This helps when notifying of schedule changes, upcoming exams, etc. Because it blocks your actual phone number, students can't harass you or claim you were sending inappropriate messages (unless you actually are). In turn, you cannot see your student's numbers.

What do you dislike?

When Remind gained new features, using them correctly was complicated for us old users of their former program. Before you couldn't contact individual students, which I actually liked a lot. Now you can contact individuals, and it could happen accidentally.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great resource for educators; you can have parents or even students (at higher grade levels) add a class using a unique code. Then you can send out text messages live or schedule them in advance to those signed up to that unique code. You can have multiple codes or classes and send messages to all students (schedule change) or just one class (assignment due, reminder to study for an exam, etc). Because Remind doesn't show any direct phone numbers, it's safe for you and your students!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For an educator, Remind's service is helping me keep contact with my students without safety of myself or my students being compromised.

"Best communication app ever!"

What do you like best?

I love that my students and parents can message me any time with any questions they have and I can respond immediately. My students and parents have access too me during school and after school without me having to give out my personal phone number.

What do you dislike?

There are no dislikes. This app is a teacher who wants to encourage his or her students dream come true. It provides a means for communication that allows an open door policy to be implemented.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Benefits are that I can reach parents and students with one app.

"Remind App Review"

What do you like best?

Remind allows us to stay in contact with all members of our youth civic group for scheduling, meetings, fundraising ideas and plans, and to keep up on all finances. Able to send out one notice and group members can choose the method they can best see the notices either by app, email, or group text depending on how they have set themselves up.

What do you dislike?

Some people seem to occasionally fall off the group list. We are working to resolve this since this is a new program for us.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great program to consolidate messages sent out. Group members choose how they want to see your messages so there is no more excuses for communication breakdowns.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Staying in contact, updating all involved with details, changes, group needs.

"A great way for a coach to interact with his athletes"

What do you like best?

This app provides a safe way to have interactions with my high school age athletes without giving out my personal phone number. The updated version now allows for whole class messages, group messages of up to 9 people in a "class" or individuals. Each teacher/coach has the option of turning replies on or off, allowing students to reply to your original message. Remind never deletes a message and you have the ability to get an email copy of every conversation you have had with an athlete or student. There is a website version of the product and I have also used the iphone application as well. The phone app works great and is the version I use most often.

What do you dislike?

The application does take some time to load occasionally, making it not quite as fast a text messaging. Remind has also gone through a lot of updates (all of them good) which has required relearning a lot of how the application works.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It takes very little start up time, which makes it easy to give it a trial run to see if the application will work for your needs. I highly recommend the iphone application as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This application makes it much easier to get in contact with the athletes I coach. I am able to send out team wide announcements or contact one individual on the team if needed. It is all the convenience of a text message without giving out my personal phone number and having every message recorded for safety reasons.

"The best asset to my classroom!"

What do you like best?

I love being able to communicate with my families through an anonymous number. Parents are able to text me questions and I am able to quickly respond through my phone. I like having the ability to text a parent a quick question versus always having to call. Parents appreciate the simplicity of contacting me through their regular text messaging screen.

What do you dislike?

I wish it had the ability to send larger pictures and visuals/images.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a wonderful app to improve school to home communication.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to communicate through remind with school families in a way that they enjoy and I still keep my personal contact information private.

There really isn't much that I don't like. The one issue I used to have has been recently fixed.

What do you like best?

"Use Remind to keep students, players or parents in the know!"

What do you like best?

It helps teachers and coaches keep players, parents and students up to date and allows easy communication via tools that folks use most (phones). It's a great way to get out last minute info, or share reminders.

What do you dislike?

What's not to like? It may be possible for notifications to get lost in the shuffle, but otherwise, it's a great tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Remind is easy to set up. Make sure to add people if you already have their info, or send them a text or email message with info on how to sign up/subscribe.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting important and/or last minute information out to a large group quickly in a text-like manner.

"Useful for sending reminders without sharing personal information"

What do you like best?

Allows teachers to communicate with students and parents without any participating parties having to share personal contact information.

What do you dislike?

No dislikes. Gets the job done of allowing communication without sharing private information.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use this to encourage and ease communication with students and parents. They will be more likely to ask the questions on their minds if they can quickly communicate with an app rather than sending you an email. Especially useful for clarifying what the homework assignment is or what is covered on an upcoming assessment. Send out instant messages to all of the participants.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Answering questions asked by students or parents swiftly by getting messages sent through the app.

"Great app for teacher and parent communication"

What do you like best?

My daughter is in 5th grade and getting better at being responsible but still needs help from her teacher on getting homework done and what to bring to and from school. This app syncs with my phone and her teacher pushes a notification everytime there is something due or an event happening at school. It is so useful and I really like the functionality of it. I love that I can message the teacher directly from the app and can join multiple classes.

What do you dislike?

I have yet to find anything I really dislike about this app. I am having a few issues with it force quitting on me but other than that it is very useful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting information from my daughters teacher in a timely manor. I forget to check email late at night after I pick up my kids from school so when I get a notification on my phone of something that is due or a reminder about a vocal concert and when to be there I am extremely thankful!

No dislikes at the moment. It would be nice if I could add a photo to the parent profile so I could put a face to the name.

Consider how you will get parents enrolled in the classes. It does take time, and is less effective if only a few parents are signed up for your class.

"Handy tool if your kids have phones"

What do you like best?

Makes it really easy to get information out quickly without sending another email (which 7th and 8th graders don't always check). Also, the kids can't reply to the group, so it avoids a lot of middle school nonsense.

What do you dislike?

The hardest part is finding time to sit everyone down and get them signed up. Also, having multiple people as admins can be frustrating to get set up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for special out-of-dress code reminders and such some, but mostly we use it on our big three night, out-of-town trip. We can quickly let the kids know there's a change in plans or even just remind them what to wear that day.

"Great product! I love that they are evolving..."

What do you like best?

I work at a college and collaborate with K12 partners. While many things surrounding privacy can cause issues, Remind has been a great way to communicate deadlines and important up comings. I love that parents are able to get involved and the two-way communication is increasingly beneficial.

What do you dislike?

The character limit can be discouraging, but I believe it has a place in the app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have a thoughtful plan of how to use remind. It's a great service for the right things, over use will discourage involvement. I send out URGENT items with remind and stick to email for additional.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Remind"

What do you like best?

I LOVED how user friendly Remind was. I could message & e-mail multiple students & parents at once, and all of their information & my information remained confidential. The program had a nice looking interface & was user friendly.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that our school district administrators asked us to stop using Remind because they wanted to have more control over the system if needed (which is understandable for both their safety and the safety of the teachers & students etc...). They also found a way to link our district's emergency response system automatically to a new in-district reminder system that the district developed. This was great for teachers, students, and parents, but I personally like the "look" or interface of the Remind system a little better than the one that was developed in house by our district. Other than not being able to use it anymore and not being able to have district administrators be able to have access to Remind to oversee messages etc., I really liked using Remind.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure that if you are using it at school that district officials approve of it's use like they did in our district for the first few years that we were able to use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The reason that other teachers and myself used Remind was to increase communication with parents & students and to help students to be more successful in school.

I love how easy Remind makes it to contact my students in large groups and pre-schedule mass texts. However, my students just have to respond to have a one on one conversation with me. The software is very easy to manage and maintain.

What do you dislike?

Students cannot unsubscribe themselves, and importing contacts is slow. I also do wish the texts could come from my personal number in this case.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sign up your own number first for testing and to better understand the user experience

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mass texts and increasing participation and the spread of information

"Remind 101 review"

What do you like best?

I like that you can set up reminders for your tasks and set up events through this easily. It makes the job of creating announcements for class really easy. It also helps me plan ahead of time for my own sessions.

What do you dislike?

The messages are just one way and that makes a conversation rather difficult. To add to that, having a word limit to the texts is not really helpful for big plan descriptions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Some competitors say that groupme is better but I would just like to say that this allows scheduling AND sending reminders which can be a hassle with groupme.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it sometimes to remind my students to attend my sessions.

What do you dislike?

Nothing. This has worked great for me and my classroom needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Many of my students don't check their school emails and often miss homework reminders or notifications of cancelled classes. This is a quick, foolproof way to communicate with them. They all have access to their cellphones constantly, so this has been the best way to communicate.

It is very easy to use. You create your class and input parent information. You can select an individual person to message, or a group message. The parents can respond immediately because it was sent to their phone.
