Skyward has launched a new customer forum as a resource for Skyward customers and Skyward employees to come together and share their software knowledge. Building on the excellent networking opportunities available at user group conferences, the customer forum expands interaction to a year-round environment.
The Skyward forum will allow you to share information and documents, discover better ways of using the system and receive insight from other districts about how they are using the Skyward products. While not a replacement for service calls, your participation in the forum will help us build a network of Skyward users who can help others with suggestions on best practices, share training documents or brainstorm new ideas. The ultimate goal for the forum is to share ideas and knowledge to allow you to do your job more efficiently and effectively.
A variety of employees from Skyward will be playing an active role on the forum as well. Employees will be posting information about new features and events, sharing best practices and contributing to the discussions wherever they can.
What information is on the forum?
The forum currently has a variety of topics available, including:
Student Management Suite
Skyward General Discussions
State Specific topics area
We will be expanding these categories as we identify new areas or modules that can split off to their own topic.
