DaySchool Overview

What is DaySchool?

DaySchool is a cloud-based school administration solution designed to help small and midsize private schools automate processes related to contact management, parent communication, and enrollment tracking. It lets users segment mailing lists of donors as per constituent groups, send email reminders about campaigns, and create phonathon forms for collecting various data, such as child information, contact details, and past giving history.

Key features of DaySchool include application management, attendance tracking, online payments, student information and records, progress reports, class registration, and a parent portal. The admissions management solution allows teams to store data about parents, alumni, grandparents, applicants, donors, and inquiries, in a unified database for future reference. To facilitate communication, the WebConnector enables prospective families to submit online applications and inquiries.

DaySchool’s communication wizard helps institutes create custom emails, envelopes, labels, and letters, which can be sent to an individual or in bulk to a group. It comes with user-defined fields, letting users generate reports relevant to specified schools.

DaySchool allows schools to automatically create enrollment contracts for new and current students, and run labels for admission activities for families who have not yet enrolled. Plus, users can maintain family rosters in various formats and email parents of students during field trips.

Great product, Excellent customer service

I have used many different kinds of software in my life and I have never experienced one that has been as useful and easy to use as Dayschool. From the data conversion to customizable user fields, this software has many features more expensive systems lack. But the best part of the package is the team behind it-- responsive, caring, thoughtful, and imaginative people who care about the clients first. I have made suggestions over the years that have been implemented which feels great to know I am part of the evolution of this software.

I wish there were more stars to give for customer service.

Best Small School Software!

From day one, Snowman Software has been so easy to work with. The customer service is top notch. Calls back are always within 15 minutes of your email or call. The hands-on conferences are very well done...and are helpful to both new clients as well as ones like me who have had the software for a number of years. I love how they are always looking to update the software from suggestions from their customers. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

DaySchool gives the user an opportunity to customize reports based on their own needs. I am fascinated by the ease with which one can communicate using the software. The ability to personalize emails, letters and other correspondences makes communication very effective.

The best system for a small school like us to manage our families, enrollment and donor giving

I use Dayschool and the Admission and Development modules all day. I find the updates and training opportunties (webinars, etc) very useful and timely.

I wish there were more stars to give for customer service.

Pros

Ease of use, logical layout, the ability of multiple people to work on it at the same time, the reports are extremely customizable and fast. I love being able to configure the donor names and I especially love being able to add fields that are relevant to my organization.

Cons

I wish they had an event tracking module. It could be just like the volunteer module except to capture event attendance. It would be good to have something better to capture notes than just one field on the development tab.

Response from Snowman Software

Deanna,

You have been a great client and we have really appreciated your suggestions over the years as we continually strive to make sure our schools have what they need at their fingertips!

That Event Module is on our list, and you will see some of the other enhancements we've discussed when our new Version 9.0 comes out later this year!

Pros

Customer Service is top-notch. The response time and solutions provide more than what I originally sought.

Cons

Sometimes I encounter limitations between enrollment data and admission data. In some reports, I can track and filter by date, and others I cannot....but wish I could.

Response from Snowman Software

Erin,

Thanks for taking the time to let others know about our software - we love working with Oak Meadow and your team.

Contact us when you have time so that we can discuss the limitations you mention - there may be a way to pull exactly what you need! And if not, we'd love to get the specifics to put on our ToDoList.

Pros

Simple, easy.

Cons

Remote Desktop Connection. Not able to add gifts straight to constituent record.

Response from Snowman Software

Anne, we are so glad you are enjoying using DaySchool and appreciate you taking the time to write a review.

To clarify about adding gifts "straight to records" - gifts are easily added directly to constituent records manually; but currently they are not brought directly into the database through the school website.
