Schedule the Drill

Once all of the specifics of the Drill Overview, Locations, and Monitors have been confirmed, the Drill can be Scheduled by clicking on Schedule from the bottom right.

When Scheduling a Drill, the Date and Time that Monitors should be informed of the Drill and given access to the Monitor form on the Community Portal will be able to be set. 

After Scheduling the drill, this Notification Date & Time will be visible under the Location Observations tab on the Drill.
The Date & Time of Monitor Notifications can be edited after the fact:
  • If the date is edited to a date/time in the past, the notifications will send immediately.
  • If there was a Notification Date & Time that already passed and it is edited to the future, the Notifications will send again. 

Note: If there are no Monitors assigned to the Locations, there will be no option to edit these Notifications in the Location Observations tab as there will be no Notifications sent. 

Finalize the Drill

Once the Drill has taken place, the Monitor Observations will be available in the Drill for review.
