We've had a request from our advising team and some parents to add another notification type to the observer role. The requested feature would allow observers to opt into receiving text or email notifications when a student has submitted an assignment.
This would allow our parents to know when their student is being productive throughout the day as they work through the curriculum we've provided. An observer that has notifications on would know if their student wasn't staying on track by the lack of notifications through email or text and could reach out to the student.
Per Kristin's suggestion below, a daily digest feature should also be incorporated as an option for parent observers if they choose to opt into these notifications.
