NEW! Download our Starter Templates
Our Starter Templates are a set of 7 templates for common school needs that leverage Branching Minds' variables to pull in student information. Customize them as needed and upload them using the instructions below.
BRM makes it easy to create template letters that will streamline family communications school wide.
Template letters should be created using MS Word and can include a variety of insertable variables to make it easy to personalize the letters. (For more information on these variables, go to the FAQ for Reference Guide on Family Communication Templates)
To upload template letters for a school, go to Settings, then click Family Communication:
Select the school(s) that you would like to add the template to from the dropdown menu, and then click ADD NEW TEMPLATE:
Add the name for the template letter then upload the Word document, and click SAVE:
Once the template has been added, if you would like to edit, download, or delete the family communication template, click on one of the corresponding icons on the right side of the page. The pencil icon is used to edit the template, the arrow icon is used to download the template, and the trash icon is used to delete the template.
Once you have added a templated letter for a school, teachers from that school will be able to generate letters for students from the Family Communication section of their OVERVIEW page, and BRM will replace all of the variables with each student's info.
