DIY Amendments for SZ Newsletters

DIY edits are enabled for all Schoolzine Newsletters. It’s easy to quickly make small text based edits, such as punctuation and spelling mistakes, prior to sending the newsletter to your community.

Before you get Started:

  • DIY Amendments can only be made to newsletters that have been approved or distributed and is for text based edits only.
  • If you need to make any additional changes such as images, attachments or videos these will need to be processed by Schoolzine via the Amendments process.
  • If Schoolzine has to process additional changes, we will overwrite any DIY Amendments that you have made. The DIY changes will either need to be included in your amendments submission or you will need to redo the changes after the Schoolzine amendments have been processed.
  • To make DIY Amendments, Schoolzine recommends using Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Safari.
