Create accounts without a SIS sync

For administrators with a School and District plan.

You can create accounts for staff members, parents, and students in your organization without transferring data from your student information system (SIS). Click here for information about rostering with a SIS sync.

Before creating accounts for anyone in your community, make sure to notify them about Remind. You can find email templates here.

Create Remind accounts with contact information

If you have contact information for people in a school, you can create accounts for them automatically.

You'll need a spreadsheet with the full names and contact information (either cell phone number or email address) of the people you'd like to add to Remind. You can add up to 150 people at a time, and you can repeat the process as many times as necessary.

Then, log in to Remind and go to a school dashboard.

  • Click on the Add people button in the top right.
  • In the list of options on the left, select Phone or email contacts.
  • From your spreadsheet, copy and paste the required information into the table. *The table will expand!
  • Click on the Add people button to create their Remind accounts.

Add people to Remind with a school code

If contact information isn't available, people in your community can create accounts instantly with your school code. Like class codes, this is the unique code for each school on a Remind plan. For district administrators, every school in the district will have a different school code.

To find your school code, click on the Add people button in the top right of the school dashboard and select In-person instructions. When people text this code to the phone number 81010, their accounts will automatically be created.


To print out these instructions, select Printable PDFs to generate a customized flyer.

Tip: Post copies of this flyer in areas with high parent traffic, like the school entryway or at the front desk.

People who already have Remind accounts

If you create a Remind account for someone who already has an account, or if they text your school code to 81010, they'll be automatically added to your organization.

If you see duplicates of people in your organization, they might have signed up with a different email address or cell phone number. Contact the Support team to merge multiple accounts.

Creating classes on Remind

Once Remind accounts have been created for people in your organization, you can create classes and populate them as well.
