If you are looking for a simple way to message a specific group of people right from Beehively, the People messaging feature is exactly what you are looking for. Just follow these steps to send messages to any group of students, parents, or staff.

Step 1: Open the People section of the Beehively portal by going to Administration > People

Step 2: Using the search/filter bar, filter by a particular field, or search for people by any field by simply typing. For more information on how to do this, click here.

Step 3: Once you have narrowed down your search, select the names you wish to message, you can do this manually by checking the box next to the name, or clicking “Select All”

Note: If you need to select people from multiple groups, select people from your first search, then clear the search/filter bar by clicking the ‘X’ in the gray filter selection box, and search for your next group. Your selection will persist even if the search or filter changes. You can always see the number of users selected in the upper middle section of the search bar area.

Step 4: After you have selected all of the people that you wish to message, click the Continue button on the right-hand side of the screen and select Send Email under Message.

Step 5: You are now ready to write your message. From this view, you will be able to add a subject line and write your message, as well as attach files or reports.

Step 6: After you are done writing your message, click Continue. You can then send or edit your message from the preview screen.
