Can parents be added to the 'Youth' circle

Postby thedayfamily » Sat Jan 18, 2020 9:03 am

The gospel living app has a great 'Whatsapp' like facility that we would love to use for our youth to stay in touch and know what's going on. Can youth leaders (administrators to the youth 'circle') add parents to the youth circle? Parents inevitably need to know what's going on with youth group conversations and I am reluctant to move away from WhatsApp if the parents are going to be left out the conversation.

I don't have access currently, but I believe that parents are able to have visibility into their children's circles by default.

From screen shots online, parents are added to their children's circles automatically.

Same goes for your callings. You'll be added to relevant circles automatically.

I just checked this in the app: as an example, parents are absent in our deacons quorum circle. I also understand we're currently unable to manually add anyone to a given circle. It could be the functionality is different for the "children's" circles (those turning 12 after the current year).

I also just specifically checked the youth circle: the only adults I see are youth leaders (their calling).

Parents have visibility of all their children's circle. This is located under "My Children's Circles." This is by default and looks like parents are not listed as part of the circle.

Parents can currently see the circles, but when will they be able to see the calendar items for youth?

Parents are “view only” on youth circles for their children by default. This is a problem. I don’t receive notifications when new messages are posted even though I have my notifications turned on, and I cannot respond with any questions or comments. Ideally our youth would all be on top of this communication, and be discussing all new items with their parents, but when we are talking about 11 year olds, even if they do have device, they’re not always on them and can’t be counted on to relay important information.
