QikKids Messaging Service (QKMS) Management Guide
This guide will assist you with the QikKids Messaging service for your database. The guide is broken into the various steps that you can take to begin emailing messages to your families.
Please click on the appropriate links below to utilise this service.
The QKMS should be used for direct communications to your families where it is important that the parents receive the message such as notifications around service closures, as a part of your emergency process or to quickly filter to parent lists to facilitate debt management or event notification. It is not designed as a Marketing tool to manage and facilitate the production of things such as newsletters and other advertising.
Importantly, as it is not designed as a Marketing tool and is designed as a message service, QKMS does not facilitate a Subscription type service and therefore parents are unable to Unsubscribe. As a result, please ensure you utilise the filter options fully so you are targeting the appropriate contacts in your QikKids database.
