How do I message users in AccuCampus?



Messages can be sent automatically through triggers. For example, when an appointment is created, a confirmation can automatically be sent to the student and staff member. But there may be times when you will need to message users on demand, without a trigger. The ability to send on-demand messages is dependent on your permissions.

1. From the Main Sidebar, hover over General.





2. Click Users.





 3. Click Send Message.




 
4. Search for and select recipient(s). Note: You can message more than one user, or message an established group.





5. Enter a Title for the notification.





6. Choose how the message will be sent. More than one method may be selected.
