We do not charge for custom coding, but try to line up feature requests into our roadmap, so we can implement them in due course. We are a tiny team, with very limited resources, but we try to help schools where we can. You can look at the features under development in v11 and planned for v12 from our roadmap page: https://gibbonedu.org/support/developers/gibbon-road-map/.
To answers your questions:
- Yes, both of these are possible. For SMS, however, you need to register with an SMS gateway (http://onewaysms.com/), and they charge per message, and currently don’t support all countries.
- This is in theory possible, but with the paid gateway may not be a feasible way to go. Why not use email?
- This is not directly possible, but you could install all instances on one server, and then use some scripts to bring out the data you need.
- This can be done with the Messenger module.
I hope this helps.
Yes, it is a system for a single school. So, to have multiple schools, you would need multiple installs, and then a web page of your own to list them. I would love to implement a multi-school solution into Gibbon (like Multi Site in WordPress), but I fear we do not currently have the programming resources to do this. It would be a huge job.
Mr Daniel (DWBM),
I can see that you have a very important and personal project to do. I can help you with what you want to do. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s discuss.
Hello, we are also looking at Gibbon for two different applications to support our international ministry.
I appreciate what you are trying to do, and it sounds like multi-school Gibbon would definitely benefit you. As we mentioned, above however, it is not on the official time line for the foreseeable future, simply due to resource constraints. Sorry we can’t do more right now, but we appreciate your input all the same.
I can make gibbon multi-school. Contact me at email@example.com if you want this.
