Where do I find my messages in Famly?
The Messages section of Famly allows you to securely communicate with your child's setting. To find Messages:
Log in to Famly
Click on the two speech bubbles in the upper right corner of your screen, between your Notifications (the bell icon), and your link to the help centre (the question mark icon).
You will find the most recent messages at the top.
Unread messages will be shown with a red circle with a number in, and a red dot next to the message itself (as below)
How to write a message to your child's setting
Click on the pencil icon in 'Messages' to start a new message. You have the option to select between different recipients. You can choose:
Your child's room (all the practitioners in that room)
An individual staff member, such as your child's Key Person
The Manager of Management of your child's setting
If your setting allows this, you may also be able to contact another parent at your child's setting.
Once you have chosen your recipients, you can compose your message in the white box at the bottom of the page (as below). You can add photographs or documents with the 'Upload' button, in the bottom left corner. When you're happy with the message, click 'Send'
