Have you downloaded the NEW Cornerstone App? If not, be sure to head on over to your App Store and download it today! This app has been carefully designed with a variety of opportunities for you to stay informed and connected according to your unique interests and needs. You can even receive app notifications about snow days and school emergencies!
Over the next few weeks we will be publishing a series of articles to introduce you to the many features available on the app. For now, we will highlight just a few important instructions and key features. Please watch your email and the next few editions of the Lion’s Roar for more helpful information.
Initial Set-Up Notes
1. Do not skip the initial set-up process. During the set-up process, you will be asked to “turn on” channels based on your notification preferences. This will determine which articles will appear in your current news feed, which events will show on your calendar view, and which notifications you will receive. For example, choosing to turn on “Athletics” will mean that all athletics events will show when you click on your app’s main calendar icon. (To easily update your preferences in the future, simply use the Settings button to make your changes.)
2. Be sure to allow this App to send push notifications to your phone. You may even want to set it as a priority view. Then you will receive important updates and reminders from the office, as well as notification when an emergency message has been sent. You can now receive “Snow Day” notifications this way, too!
