How to add parent emails (Email CC)
Parent email addresses can be added to your Merit account so that they are cc'd when their child is recognized for an achievement. We recommend adding parent emails in bulk when doing your annual or semi-annual student imports, however you can include them in any spreadsheet you are uploading when publishing a student achievement. Here's an example of a spreadsheet with a "Parent Email" column:
Note: If a student has multiple parent email addresses, include the email addresses in the same cell separated by commas.
After uploading a spreadsheet you will see a field labeled "Email CC" in the Map Student Data section as shown below. Check the checkbox to import your parent email addresses.
This will permanently tie these parent email addresses to your students and automatically email them about their child's achievements going forward.
