It's an awesome product for parent-teacher communication and monitoring my child's progress

Pros

Things I like most about School Diary are - - A single platform for all school communications - Instant photograph sharing from school - Calendar and reminders for school events - Highly accurate bus tracking and notification system - Unified payment within the product - One to one communication with teachers It's a one stop app for all my communications to my son's school. It provides me window to observe the progress of my son's education. Provides me timely feedback to take corrective action. This app is easy to use, engaging and effective at the same time.

Cons

Initially there were some bugs in the software and UI was not great, but the School Diary team has solved them quickly. Not only that they have also added new features frequently. Over a period this app has become indispensable for me. I am sure this team is constantly working on the product and will keep improving.

Overall lot of manual effort is saved everyday which can be used in other productive activities.

Time and effort saving. Homework and other important communications are reaching in parents hands directly. Pictures and msgs can be shared individually or in smaller groups/class wise.

Pros

Homework communication, informing the parents about all school events and sharing everyday pics is where this is most useful. There's still lot of scope for improvement, but it has become an integral part of our system. The support team is quick to respond which helps a lot. After being used to communication through the app, its not possible to switch back because of ease of operation and time saving.

Cons

There are few limitations like video sharing is not possible and Day care module which needs to be revised. Sometimes msgs also get delayed, but overall it can be relied upon.

School Diary is an excellent app!

School Diary is the best app for me. It is very convenient to use for learners who are new in the platform.

Pros

School Diary offer variety of features which are bery convenient to use. Some features that I found so user-friendly are the calendars and reminders for school events and the unified payment. I can consider this as a one-stop application for every parent for their children.

Cons

On my first use of the app, I had experienced some bugs and UI problems, but it was already fixed. I wish this app could also have automatic grading for worded answers.
