DaySchool Feature Reviews

9 reviewers had the following to say about DaySchool's features:

Deanna Dement Myers

Great product, Excellent customer service

2016-07-27

From the data conversion to customizable user fields, this software has many features more expensive systems lack.

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.

Cons

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.

I think that this software is great for any size school. It covers a range of data and is very intuitive. We don't use the web connector, but from what I understand, it is getting more robust and integrates with most web site services. You will never get better customer service than from the Snowman team! Yay Leslie!

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!

Excellent tool used in the school where my son attends

2018-02-16

Pros

it is a quite complete software, it helps in all school aspects, enrollment, attendance, reports by students, detailed and explicit, the school made a good investment in the acquisition of this software, the versatility and friendliness that it has to attract the attention of the users is very complete.

Cons

What I like the most is that as a representative he has a panel to verify the progress of the students and a module dedicated only to the committee of representatives.

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

2016-07-27

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

Pros

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

Cons

In some reports, I can track and filter by date, and others I cannot....but wish I could.

I know there is more that it can do ... still learning! Thank you, everyone, at Snowman Software!!

Pros

It is not more than I need - not too big, not too small, just right!

Cons

I wish the admissions piece was a bit more advanced so we could have considered using it as well.

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.
