Parents can now log in to their OpenApply account using SMS message, alongside their Email and password. This is currently available for schools in China only, provided that the parent is using a Chinese mobile number.
For parents who do not have an OpenApply account yet, they can create one via account registration on school's landing page, and verify their mobile number in the process.
To allow parents to do so, the school will need to enable the Register Now button on their landing page, at Settings > School Settings (this is enabled by default, so if you can see the green Register Now button on the landing page, then you can skip this step):
Once that is done, there will be a green Register Now button on top right of the school's OpenApply landing page.
Parent can click on Register Now button to create their OpenApply account, and verify their mobile number in the process:
Once the mobile number has been verified, the parent will have the option to log in using SMS message, alongside their Email and password, on both the web browser and the WeChat Mini Program.
