This feature is available as part of the Hero Premier package. Please contact the Helpdesk if you would like to subscribe to Premier to make this feature available for your school.
The Hero Premier Landing Page is the first thing that your parents see when they log into the Hero app. You are able to customise this page to put all your important links in one place. This may include, but is not limited to your school website, Facebook page, Hail newsletters or your policies and procedures. You can also include here links to the school calendar and term dates.
SETTING YOUR HERO LANDING PAGE
A Hero Site Administrator can manage your school's landing page to control what caregivers will see and access when logged into Hero.
1. Navigate to School App Options in the Administration Menu on the left side of your screen.
2. The first thing you will see is a table displaying the features available to you with Hero Premier and those that you have enabled for use. You will also see a preview of the app screen your parents will see when logged into the Hero app. This preview changes as you make changes to your settings.
Please contact the Helpdesk if you have any questions regarding your school's subscription to Hero Premier.
Note: Your term dates are taken from the school dates set in your Hero software so there is no option to customise these here. For more information see Showing Term Dates in the Hero Family App
