Yes. No special "app" is needed to log in, compose, and send alerts from a SmartPhone, that includes iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, Blackberry, or any other phone with a web browser and internet service.
Accessing the Mobile Portal
The Omnilert Mobile Portal is a mobile web portal designed for easy use from any SmartPhone.
To retrieve your Mobile Portal link, log into Omnilert as a Super Administrator and visit the Account page. Scroll down to find the link to your Omnilert system's private Mobile Portal login page.
Simply copy your Mobile Portal's URL and send it to your cell phone (e.g. in an email).
When you open the link, you'll be taken to a login prompt like the one shown below:
Adding Omnilert to your iPhone Home Screen
To add the Mobile Portal to your iPhone's "Home Screen", tap the Share icon and then select Add to Home Screen (shown below).
A similar process will work for Android and other mobile phones. Just add the link to your phone's home screen and you'll have an app link for quick access to Omnilert on the go.
Using the Mobile Portal
Using the Omnilert Mobile Portal is pretty easy.
Everything will be laid out in a nice, verticle format that is easy to use on a phone. Select your Groups and Services, then scroll down to either select a Template or compose a message and send it.
If you're having trouble logging into your account using the Omnilert Mobile Portal, check the following:
- Be sure you're got the correct mobile URL. Since the web address is keyed to your Omnilert account, your organization will have its own unique mobile login address. If you're not sure, go back to your normal admin web portal's Account page and re-copy the URL as shown previously.
- Accept Cookies on your phone. Your phone's browser will need to be set to allow "cookies" or you won't be able to log in. You might see a "Session has ended" error on your phone's browser in this case. Enabling cookies can be done on any phone. On an iPhone, check the Safari options in your Settings app on your phone. (On Android, you may have different options depending on your make/model phone.)
Note: Looking to launch a Scenario from your phone? Download the Scenarios app from Omnilert via the Apple Store or Google Play store.
