Configure a Board for Email

Notification-type boards can be configured to notify users outside of WebEOC. When configured for emails, the subject and content are created from a status board entry. Multiple email options can be applied to a field. For example, a single field can be part of both the Subject and Body of the email.

An email server must be configured to enable the email function; see setting up your email server.
