The Trust Communications Overview shows:

  • Remaining SMS credit
  • Used Email credit
  • SMS sent today
  • Email and Push notifications sent today and this week
  • A summary of communications sent to all Contacts (Students, Student Contacts, and Staff).

This is displaying data that is found in your Vision Central MIS System.

The page will be released in two stages.

In the first release the Trusts will only see the Remaining SMS Credit card populated.

In the second release the Trusts will see the Used E-mail Credit card, SMS Today card, Emails & Push Notifications card, and the Communication Summary table populated. Trusts will also be able to send communications to Trust wide Contacts (Students, Student Contacts, and Staff).

When the user clicks on any row under SMS Today and Emails & Push Notifications, the grid below will display the selected row’s data for the date selected in the calendar.

In future releases you will be able to buy SMS and Email credit from Vision.
