What is the Message Board designed for?
The message board is designed to assist in the communication between officers in the field and dispatchers using the Issue Monitor. None of the information included on the message board will be entered on to the reports.
The message board is meant to be used for lightweight quick messages. It is not meant to be used as a form of communication for your customer.
The message board can be used in the following scenarios:
- A guard can message dispatch to ask for a verification of the post orders
- A dispatcher and message a single officer asking for a quick phone call when the officer is available
- A dispatcher can message all active officers with a company memo or notice.
Important Note: Dispatchers will not receive an alert for a message if they do not have the message board window open.
