Configure a Board for IMX Connect

Notification-type boards can be configured to send messages to IMX Connect apps (iOS or Android). You can enable this feature via the input of a new or existing WebEOC board. When configured for IMX Connect, the message is created from a status board entry.

SMTP is not required for this process.

To configure a board for IMX Connect
  1. In the Admin window, go to Process: Boards. The Boards page opens.

  7. In the field to the right of the check box, enter the message subject.

    Note: This text is added to the beginning of the message subject when the message is sent. After WebEOC users install and configure the IMX Connect app on their devices, they can begin to receive notifications. These push notifications are delivered to the recipients' devices even when the app is closed.

    Tip: Notifications from a board can be sent to positions or groups. When you send a message, all users in the selected position or group receive it.

  8. From the drop-down list below the IMX Connect Enabled check box, select the board's view.

    Note: Only the fields included in this view are visible to users when they receive the push notification message or open the board from IMX Connect.

    Tip: Users can receive notifications from boards that do not appear on their control panel. However, to view the board in WebEOC, the user needs permission to access the board's view.

  9. Click Save.

  10. Go to the HTML section and click the Design View tab.

  11. Configure each field you want to designate as recipient by setting the field to mobilerecipient.

    Note: Mobilerecipient must be the name of a WebEOC group or position.

  12. Configure each field you want to designate as a message by setting the field to mobilemessage.

    Note: Mobilemessage can be whatever best suits your needs. This field acts similarly to an email subject line.

    Tip: If multiple fields are selected, they are all included in the message.

  13. Click Save.

After IMX Connect is enabled for the input view, check boxes are available for both mobilerecipient and mobilemessage in the design view. These fields help organize the message content, indicating the field that appears as the subject and the field that contains potential message recipients.
