When a new assignment is created or when an assignment is graded, it would be fantastic for SM to send students an email.  This would be a fine supplement to an in-class reminder.

    I feel like this is an imperative feature.  I've been using SmartMusic for 3 weeks, leaving detailed responses to everyone's submissions, and they haven't seen any of them. Going back to an old assignment to see what/if the teacher wrote is too hard for students.  They need to get an email if their teacher responded.

    This is so important. If there was a Google Classroom or another Learning Management System with Smartmusic that would be the best for notifications. Kids dont really check email.

    Our students are required to check their email...so maybe both?  Or have your students set up their email accounts to forward?

    Ok cool. I agree both then. Smartmusic needs to be more flexible and stop dragging their feet.

    Yes, email please. Most of my students only get on SmartMusic every other week for tests. An automatic email to them that includes my comments and their grade is essential.

    Give the teachers the ability to manually add a parent email to their account. Kids are way to slow to do this kind of thing.

    I agree. I think Smart Music should study the Google Classroom platform or any LMS to get an idea of their essential functions then apply them to the Smart Music platform.

    In the old version when the parent would receive notification my students definitely practiced more and where more involved in the students success.

    "Squeaky Wheels" get the grease. When I re-assign multiple times, and it bothers the parent, things get done.

    In the student's homepage in Classic, there was a GREEN SQUARE right next to assignments that I made a comment on. They made the green square so easy to see, it was great.  Now in NEW smartmusic, I make literally hundreds of comments and I now KNOW that most of the comments sweren't seen!!  Seriously, why would a student go back into a completed assignment unless they knew that the teacher made a comment??

    This such an important feature for teachers, parents, and students.  I depended on this in classic.  Now, I will have to send my own notification emails and reminder emails. Please make this a feature in NEW SmartMusic.

    When will students be able to get notifications when an assignment has been given to them? This seems like the easiest and most obvious feature to add to Smartmusic. Pretty much any other software ever to exist has a way to receive automated notifications. Why can't Smartmusic add this?

    Absolutely agreed. Students and parents are busy and need helpful reminders. This is absolutely crucial for sharing information.

    Additionally: no one knows how to use the "vote feature" you have employed on this forum. Everyone is adding comments, rightfully so, and people don't know that you WANT them to click the ^ arrow to "vote." You don't have the word "vote" by the arrow. I had to call and speak to a SmartMusic rep directly to figure out "how to vote." I know you think voting in this way is working, but it's not. This is an incredibly imperative feature, and before I voted just now, there was only 1 vote, which looks to you as SmartMusic as though this feature is not important. 

    In short: please update your process for tallying feature requests. This way isn't working, in my opinion. Thank you.

    To further reiterate my point: the original post was created two years ago... and this feature still isn't installed. Again, people aren't using your "voting system" as you had thought they would or expect them to, without explaining it or illustrating it properly.

    I cannot figure out why this feature to send email messages for notifications is not on this version? I have made numerous requests for a couple years now and all they say is..."please submit a request"....did that and still nothing?
