The SPOTTERON Community Pack is all about communication. With the push message feature, Citizen Science projects can stay in touch with their user base. From the administration interface, short messages with max. 280 letters can be composed and with just a click sent to all the smartphones that have your Citizen Science apps installed.
Reaching out to your Citizen Science community
When you compose and send a push message, the phones of the participants will then make the bell sound and your message is displayed directly in the notification area on Android and IOS. The users can select a message with just one touch to open up your Citizen Science app. The message panel shows the contents in the Citizen Science app. All direct messages are shown automatically in the newsfeed of every user along with the community activity of the user's account.
The push messages support Emojis and links to any website, including your own project website, making this feature a unique tool to disseminate news and updates about your project and to engage Citizen Scientists.
