I have made a website for a school, and made a secure zone for the kids (and parents) to see all the homework. The teachers and parents like the system, but it would be even better if the parents could also receive the homework on their emails..
Do anyone know if it is possible, when a teacher submits homework with a webapp, that the webapp automatically sends out email to the parents with the homework info .. ??
There's no module desgined specifically to do that, so you can't use it as an out-of-the-box feature.
You'll need some workaround. Workflows might have helped but you can't apply one to the webapp, only set a user role as responsible.Then, when a submission is made all users in that user role are notified. Depending on what e-mail service/software the user inside that role has, you could setup filtering rules, so that if a certain message is received, it can be Forwarded to a specific set of e-mail addresses(parents). But again, it's a forward, not a direct notification, so not as elegant as one might expect. I'll leave this open for other suggestions.
Cases are the way to go here.
