Whatsapp Integration for Submitting Notifications

Hello Gibbon Community,

Please has anyone ever considered using Whatsapp as a means of sending notifications, transmitting reports? Would that be difficult to implement?

There is currently no functionality for using third party APIs such as WhatsApp or another messaging application, and at present no plans to implements it, as many schools use so many different platforms for their communities. Developing this would require a decent knowledge of interacting with third party APIs, as well as Gibbon’s codebase. It can certainly be done, but would certainly take development time. At present, our core team’s capacity is focused on ongoing refactoring and development goals, however as an open source platform, and school is free to use their own capacity to develop custom features.
