Active 911 Integration

The Scheduler integrates with Active 911 to provide an additional method to notify users or information.

 

Configuration Of Active 911 System Email Address:

1.) Your agency has an Active 911 Email address that you will need.  Login to Active 911 and obtain your Agency Email Address.

2.) Click on “Features” -> “System Configuration” -> “Active 911 Configuration“.

3.) Click on “Active 911 System Email Address” and paste you Active 911 Agency Email Address and click “Update“.  The format will be “####_lettersAndNumbers@alert.active911.com”.

 

 

Configuration Of Active 911 Groups:

Active 911 uses “Groups” that you can configure the users of each group.  Click on the “Groups” tab in Active 911 and notice the TWO LETTER code next to each group you have created.  The Scheduler will use these Group Codes to send notifications to your staff.
