The check-ins screen allows you to send a geo-targeted message to a number of checked-in users simultaneously. To get to the Check-Ins screen, click on Check-Ins at the top of the screen.
The orange box on-screen represents the geographic area you would like to communicate with called the “Muster Zone”. This zone stays centred on the screen.
The Muster Zone can be moved by either:
- Clicking and dragging the background map to the required location;
- Opening the Search bar, using the magnifying glass icon, entering a location and pressing the Enter / Return key.
- Clicking on the Regions drop-down menu (in the toolbar) and selecting the required one to centre on-screen.
You can increase this area by zooming out with the map controls or narrow the area by zooming in.
Sending a Geo-targeted notification
Once you have positioned the Muster Zone, click on Capture Muster List from the left-hand pane.
The Muster List will list all the users who are currently checked-in to SafeZone.
Click on Clear to clear the Muster list.
To create a notification message click on Notify. If you would like to send the notification to select individuals, use the check-box next to the person(s) name or to select all (If sending to all users in the Muster List, check-boxes do not need to be ticked).
Enter in the Title (Optional) and the Message into the box. The Message has a limit of 213 characters. If you do go above this limit you will receive an error message when trying to send the message.
If you want to play a sound on the user's device, tick the check-box for Play alert sound.
Press Submit to confirm and send the message or exit without sending by pressing Cancel.
