One of the great ways that Springring makes your teaching-life easier is by allowing you to set Office Hours. This means you can control when you would like Parents to contact you. And make yourself unavailable on your days off! This helps you as a Teacher to manage and organize your busy schedule by dedicating a specific time for to receive and reply to Parents and/or Students messages. This will also help Parents know when is the suitable time to contact you; making the process faster and more effective for both ends involved.
Create a Work-Life Balance
To set your Office Hours:

Once your Office Hours are set, Parents can still send you messages. However, you will not receive the notifications until you are available. The Parents will instantly receive an automated message explaining that you are unavailable and will get back to them as soon as possible.
Once you are ready to answer all your messages, you can view them all in Chat .
