In order to send texts, emails, and voice calls; subscribers must be added to Omnilert along with their contact information.
Omnilert includes several methods to add new subscribers, but the process can be broken down into two philosophies:
- Opt-In: Subscribers self-register or add their own subscriber info directly to Omnilert via the subscriber portal, or via LDAP or Shibboleth (SAML) single sign-on.
- Opt-Out: Subscriber information is added to the system by administrators by any of several methods, including; manual entry, CSV file upload, FTP upload, or even via custom apps using the Omnilert API.
Choosing how to enter subscriber data is typically part of the planning phase for any implementation.
