What is Documents?

Documents is a home-school communication tool that facilitates and improves parental engagement. It allows schools to share important documents directly with parents and students via Satchel One. Parents can now access school files from home that are relevant to them and their children and be constantly in the know about their child’s school life.

Share information seamlessly

Documents syncs with SIMS so administrators can effortlessly upload school documents directly from their MIS and share them straight to parents’ Satchel One accounts. The ability to upload important documents means there’s no need to print letters in school and send them home with students.

  • Syncs directly with SIMS
  • All Documents are shared via Satchel One
  • No more letters lost on the way home
  • Eradicate printing costs with online sharing
  • Reduce admin time previously spent sending documents home
