Screen_Shot_2014-10-20_at_11.30.25_AM.png

Sending messages

Just type a Message in the text area and click Send Notification.

  • The message will go out to all of your active users with one or more of the following roles: Student, Faculty, Staff, Advisor. 
  • The message will not be delivered to inactive users, nor will it go out to active users with none of the above-mentioned roles.
  • Those of your users who have opted-in to receive SMS Notifications will receive the message via SMS. All of the remaining users will receive an email.

History

Past notifications list below the text area together with the name of the user who sent them out.

SMS

Your  school's Pricing Plan includes a certain number of free monthly SMS messages. Check the notice in the right column to see how many free messages remain. If you exceed your limit, Populi will automatically bill you for two cents per additional SMS recipient; this amount will be reflected on your next Populi invoice. Your free message count resets on the first of the calendar month.

    Do all users have access to this tab to send out emergency notifications, or is it limited to specific roles?

    To send an emergency notification, you have to have the Staff role—they go out from the Communications tab.

    Is there a way for me to see a list of those who have opted in to receive SMS notifications?

    I also would like to be able to see who has opted in. The success of this system depends on everyone on campus buying into it.

    If possible I would like to see every new student who has a cell phone added to receive SMS notifications automatically. They then can choose to opt out.

    A report of those who have opted in would be helpful for tracking implementation.
