Sending a notification via web application
Sign in to Connect Rocket. From the dashboard page, select 'Send a Notification'.
Choose which Group(s) you would like to send the notification to by selecting the checkbox beside the group name. Once complete, click 'Next'.
Confirm your recipient list is correct and then compose your Notification. Notifications are composed of several elements:
The message content is what will be sent to the recipient(s). This content will be delivered as a text message, email and/or text-to-voice call depending on your selected delivery method (covered below)
You can optionally add a Poll to an outbound notification. To add a Poll, use the dropdown menu to select from your available Polls.
You can optionally add attachments to notifications. You can attach any file format and any number of files to a notification. When you click on 'Add an Attachment' you will be able to select files from your local computer/device or connected cloud drives (such as Drop Box, Google Drive, iCloud etc.).
Your intended recipients will now receive your outbound message and a link to the file(s) that you you have sent. The recipients can now download these files to their desktop and/or mobile device. Files shared via this manner will remain available for download on our servers for 6 months. After that point, stored files will be deleted.
Choose your delivery method.
