Sending and Receiving Messages

You can send messages to and receive messages from your dispatcher throughout the day.

Sending a Message

  1. To send a message, press the Main Menu icon and choose Messages, or press Messages on the Home screen.
  2. Place your cursor in the Enter Message box and use the keyboard to type your message. You can also press the Options menu and choose Compose New.
  3. To change the message from Normal to High priority, press the Priority icon and choose High. The icon displays red when the message is marked High priority. All the messages you send after setting the Priority to High will be marked as high priority until you change the Priority back to Normal or you exit Messages.
  4. Press the Send icon. Your message displays on the screen with the date and time it was sent. If you marked it high priority, a red exclamation mark displays with it.

Reading Received Messages

To read messages that you receive, simply scroll down the screen to see the message you want to read. Unread messages display as bold. When the message screen is viewed, all unread messages are marked as read.
