New tool at http://smartbrief.com/original/2016/07/tech-tip-how-ease-scheduling-parent-teacher-conferences  .  Excerpt:

I discovered Bloomz, a free parent-teacher communication app available for iOS and Android devices. The app lets users share pictures, class updates and private messages, plus organize volunteer requests and parent-teacher conferences.

To set up parent/teacher conferences in Bloomz:

  1. Go to My Calendar and click “Event.”
  2. Click on the date and add time slots.
  3. Choose the duration of each conference.

Parents sign on to the app and pick a time that works for them. When they’re finished, the app notifies me and I can make adjustments if necessary.
