Phone App Install Feature
Currently, YouUplift does not have an app located in the App Store. However, the following link provides simple instructions on how to easily turn your Kindness eWall into a homepage app for any mobile device: Phone App Install Instructions
(Great tech assignment for students!)
Website Embed Feature
This feature provides your Tech Team with a simple line of code that would allow you to embed your Rotating Display of Positive Messages into your school website, so that visitors can instantly see your messages.
Social Media Share Feature
This feature places Social Media Share Buttons on your entire Kindness e-Wall webpage or just on your Rotating Display only – whichever you prefer.
Yes! There are no Sign-Ups and no Log-Ins required in order to participate, as we collect no data or information of any kind. The platform is currently being used by large and small school systems throughout the country in almost all 50 states, and it has passed 100% of all school privacy regulations to date.
Yes! You can have all messages sent to as many faculty email inboxes as you’d like for Approval, and we can change or add to this list at any time.
Yes! Many of our schools do this, because if your students take to it – then the messages can begin to overflow your school email inbox at times. Not only will a separate gmail account prevent this from happening, but you can also make it accessible to all faculty members if you choose to.
Your school Kindness Wall is housed via its own customized URL link which houses both your Rotating Display of Approved Messages and your Positive Submission Form. You can simply email your Kindness Wall link to students and faculty members or you can place it on your school website for 24/7 access.
You can either cast your Kindness Wall link from any internet device to any TV monitor via a chromecast or Apple TV device, or you can place your Kindness Wall link into the browser of any Smart TV that displays the internet browser. After doing either of these, then you can simply click the FULL SCREEN MODE button on your Kindness Wall, and your Rotating Display of Approved Messages will scroll non-stop and will update itself with newly Approved messages every 10 minutes.
Yes! You can edit the text of any message before Approving it. In addition, if you’d like to keep a message but would like to remove an included image… or if you’d like to keep an image and remove the text, then you can do this before Approving the message. Your Rotating Display will only display exactly what you choose to make visible.
If you still have the original email that the message came in on, then you can return to that email and access the Approval Page for that message and click the Delete button. This will override your initial Approval. If you do not still have the original email that the message came in on, then just copy/paste the message to us, and we can jump in the back office and remove it for you – no problem!
We can provide your Tech Team with a simple line of code that will allow them to embed your Rotating Display of Approved Messages onto your school website, so that they are visibly scrolling whenever anyone comes to your site.
The schools with the highest participation are those that provide their students with 5-10 minutes a week (during Homeroom, Character Education type classes, or classroom downtime) to use the Platform to submit positive messages about one another. They will then display their Rotating Display of Approved messages via classroom Smart Boards during Homeroom or will have a TV monitor in their cafeteria or commons area where all of their Approved Messages are scrolling all day long for everyone to enjoy.
The 100% virtual schools that have the highest participation are doing the following 2 things:
  1. Sending their Kindness Wall link to all of their students and staff via email or via their digital communication system, so that they can see your Rotating Display of Approved Messages and can submit messages all from the same page.
  2. Teachers are leading the way by submitting positive messages about all of their students.
Yes! We can add a dropdown table to your Kindness Wall, so that users can choose which class or group (ex. Teachers, Parents) they belong to when submitting a message, so that you can track the number of positive messages submitted on a weekly or monthly basis.
The system is set to display the 100 most recently Approved messages, as older messages start falling out of the rotation in order to make room for the newer messages. However, we can increase or decrease this number to be whatever you’d like it to be.
Your subscription includes an unlimited number of messages and an unlimited number of displays for everyone in your school for the entire length of your subscription.
Yes! There is a banner at the bottom of your Kindness Wall link where a local business or sponsor can pay for your subscription in return for placing their logo and/or website link at the bottom of your Kindness Wall. Because the platform is such a positive community outreach, some school sponsors have even paid for additional TV monitors for their Kindness Wall as well.
Yes and No. Your Kindness Wall is a web app, but it is not located in an App store. However, this link shows you how you can easily turn your Kindness Wall into an app for any android or apple device: Phone Web App Instructions
