Allow Contacts to be Defined at the Family Level
If parent/guardian is updated on sibling, parent/guardian gets updated on all siblings.
Use case: Staff at school site only have access to update contacts at their school site. A contact (ie. Parent/Guardian) is on a sibling record at another school site and we would like to keep the data (f.name, f.name, email, address, all phone #'s) sync'd.
Hello! Thank you for this idea. We are making plans to include it in the Aeries NextGen system. Stay tuned!

Allow a change made to contact information for one sibling to update to all siblings associated with that parent and that are linked to that parent's portal.

Some cases where there are half siblings and they have different fathers or different mothers should not be linked but there may be a situation where the siblings live together and just that they want one of the parent to be linked to one of the sibling. For this scenario, it would be great if we can have the option to manually override the automatic update on the rest of the siblings.
But it would be nice to be able to update all the demographics and contact information of one student and have it automatically updated to students with the same family key.

Maybe an option in Aeries, that indicates "update other students with the same family key" and then a reply that lists which students it affected, so the user can notify other sites involved.

Family contact data is all over the place when there are multiple students at different schools. This is a very outdated model and needs a serious update. Also, need to remove parent data from the STU demographics screen as this is not maintained well and confusing in relation to parent contact data.

It would be useful if we were able to match contact records for a family across schools. Currently, when you change a parent's email on one student's contact record, you have to navigate to each student in the family and change the contact record there as well. Also a warning when contact information is discrepant for students in a family would be great to help keep contact consistency.
