New in CommandCentral Notify - Q3 2022
We're excited to review the work done this past quarter to improve the CommandCentral Notify experience for users of CommandCentral Notify, the intuitive, cloud-based notification solution used to provide critical information to community members, businesses and emergency responders, when every second counts. In this release, we’ve made several improvements with both you and your notification recipients in mind.
Simplify Group Management with Dynamic Groups
The Groups module now includes the option to create Dynamic Groups, which are automatically populated with Contacts, based on user-defined criteria. When building a Dynamic Group, you can set one or more requirements to be queried and the Group members will be automatically updated as Contact information changes. Dynamic Groups make it easier to manage notification recipients, saving time and reducing errors.
Create More Customized Email Messages
We’ve added support for Rich Text Formatting within each custom email message, enabling you to apply various fonts, font sizes and font styles—such as bold, italics and color, which can be applied to emphasize critical information. Email messages can also include hyperlinks for easy, one-click access to important resources.
Allow Email Opt-Out
Notification recipients can now opt-out of future email notifications by clicking on an unsubscribe link which is automatically included in each outbound email. In addition to protecting the integrity of the delivery platform and adhering with best practice spam guidelines, this option provides recipients with a simple solution to stop receiving unwanted emails without flagging them as spam.

IPAWS INTEGRATION TO DISTRIBUTE NOTIFICATIONS TO THE GREATER PUBLIC
We’ve introduced the ability to send messages through FEMA’s Integrated Public Alert and Warning System, also known as IPAWS. This solution provides local authorities with the ability to send emergency and life-saving information to a broader population — without any opt-in requirement from community members.
For example, we’ve all heard messages, such as severe weather warnings, come across our radios and tvs or received an Amber Alert message about a missing child on our cell phones. These messages are broadcasted to the public through the IPAWS solution, utilizing a mass notification platform such as CommandCentral Notify.
IPAWS KEY BENEFITS
Deliver Messages Across Different Broadcast Pathways
Send emergency and life-saving information to the public through multiple broadcast pathways— Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Enhanced Non-Weather Emergency Message (NWEM).
Focus On Specific Geographical Areas
Define recipients by selecting the county, state or by drawing or selecting a geographic area on the map.
Simple workflow to set up and launch IPAWS notifications in minimal, logical steps. You can also create and save pre-built IPAWS scenarios for emergency preparedness.
Modify ongoing IPAWS Notifications as circumstances change. Update the Geographic Area or WEA Message content with the most current information.
NEW FILTER OPTIONS
The filtering capability will allow you to save time and focus only on the contacts that need reaching in each scenario.
Filter Recipients By Notification Preference
This allows you to reduce the contacts selected through a map to only include individuals that have registered for specific types of notifications using the Self Registration Portal (SRP). For example, a notification’s recipients can be limited to contacts that have registered to receive public service announcements.
Filter Recipients By Contact Type
This allows you to reduce the contacts selected through a map to only include certain contact types (employee, resident, SRP registrant). For example, a notification’s recipients can be limited to contacts with the contact type of resident.
Filter Groups by Contact Type
When creating or editing a Group, this feature allows you to filter the list of available Contacts by their Contact Type (Employee, Resident, SRP registrant).
Filter Contacts by Contact Type
This feature enables you to limit the Contacts listed on the Contacts screen to only those of the selected Contact Type (Employee, Resident, SRP registrant).
