Free Virtual Spring User Group—You’re Invited!#Events
Here’s what Erin Pinter, Director of Customer Consulting and Support, shared about the event.
Q: What should people expect at the virtual spring user group?
Erin: Attendees should expect the same amazing experience they would receive at an in-person event. We’ll be delivering information on how to use our software more effectively. The only difference is that networking will be done in our forums and/or the Skyward Community.
Q: Why should people attend this spring?
Erin: Because it is awesome—and you get to learn new things for FREE! User group sessions are taught by Skyward staff and district users who are experts at using our software. You’re guaranteed to learn something new and become more efficient in the software!

Q: Will state reporting be covered?
Erin: The state reporting focus will include Idaho, Pennsylvania, Kansas, and Wisconsin, but general sessions will be available to all other states.
Q: What can people do in advance to prepare?
Erin: Make sure your workspace can access our WebEx session. The week prior to the conference, we’ll send you a test link so you can make sure you are able to connect and hear the information we’ll be sharing.
We also recommend looking over the session options in advance to decide which you want to attend. That’s another perk of the conference being remote this year—you can pick sessions that fit your schedule.
Q: What is the best part about user groups?
Erin: Learning the information—you could be on the software for 20 years or for 20 days, and there is always something new to learn! We hope to see you at the spring virtual user group April 26 to 30!
