Bulk Messaging Applicants & Families

To send a message to multiple recipients on OpenApply, first navigate to the Inquiries, Applicants, or Students roster on the left panel.

Click the Filter button on the top right. Filter for the groups of applicants, for example particular grades or statuses, that you would like to send the bulk message to.

Selecting Recipients

Select all or some of the filtered results by using the checkboxes at the left of the roster.

Next, click Send Messages. You can select from previous message templates, or click New Message to create a new template.

Writing your Message

Edit your message using the available legend (mail-merge) values. Simply click on a mail-merge value in the legend, and it will be inserted into the message, in the location of the cursor.

Once you are satisfied with your message, you can select whether to send it to Parents, Applicants, or both Parents & Applicants.

At the top of the page, you can choose to Show All recipients for your message.

Click Send (at the bottom right) when you are ready to send the message to the selected recipients. A copy of the message will be shown on the Latest Activity of each recipient’s profile.
