  7. Enter the email addresses of all recipients to whom an email is automatically sent as each new or updated entry is posted to the board. An email server must be configured to enable the email function. Refer to the General Manager section for detailed instructions on setting up your email server. When configured for emails, the subject and content are created from a status board entry.

    Note: Multiple email address can be entered, separated by a comma. You can also use an email distribution list.

    Tip: Separate email addresses with a comma character only. Do not enter spaces in the Email text field.

  8. To enable all users that have permission to the board to receive a control panel message notifications, select the Control Panel Notification check box and enter a notifications message.

  9. Select the board's view from the list. The selected view defines where the user is navigated to when they click the pop-up notification.

  10. To send messages to IMX Connect apps (iOS or Android), select the IMX Connect Enabled check box and enter the message subject into the field on the right.

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

  11. Click the board's view. Only the fields included in this view are visible to users when they receive the message or open the board from IMX Connect.

    Note: 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.
