We’re excited to announce a new way you can get a message out to your officials. You can now send your own mobile phone alerts using the Assignr messaging system.  

Send a Message via Push Notification

The Assignr messaging system is a great way to communicate with your officials via email. You can also use the same system to alert your officials on their phones as well. 

When you create a new message, just check the Also Send via Push Notification checkbox, and your message will be sent immediately by email and also to your officials’ phones as a mobile notification.

You can type the full content of the message, and also provide a short preview that will be seen on your officials’ phones. Officials who have installed the mobile app will see a notification on their phone.

Your officials can access the full message by touching the notification, or accessing the Messages area of the mobile app. They can also check their email inbox, since the message is always sent via email as well.
