Automator - Deeper Dive

You set the rules...

How should we trigger the automations? Our easy-to-use editor lets you lay out the conditions and criteria for automating things. For example you might say...

  • When
    • a specific observation is recorded...
    • or any positive behavior is recorded...
    • or one of a few particular observations are recorded...
  • a particular number of times...
  • within a particular timeframe...


Catalyst can send notifications automatically when your criteria is met or queue it up for you to review, edit, and send when you're ready.

Send email, or text (SMS) messages to...

  • Parents and guardians
  • The students, themselves
  • Other teachers
  • Building or district administrators


Students are automatically added to any lists or collections of students based on any criteria you want. For example...

  • Students staying late for homework club
  • Pizza party eligibility
  • Field trip list
  • Lunch detenction


Let your imagination run wild.

What would you like Catalyst to automatically do in response to observations you record? We're always adding more options, so reach out any time and tell us what you you'd like to see.
