This feature is available as long as your school has a subscription to one of these premium options (Houses Display, Data Insights, Scannables).
Please note!: This feature should not replace a full school security messaging solution, we provide it as a helpful auxiliary service, as we can not guarantee the message will be delivered.
In the event of a school announcement or emergency, CritterCoin admins can broadcast a message to all active Houses Displays, Data Insights Displays or Scannables Displays.
A single message can be active at any given time. The message will override all active CritterCoin displays. The message isn't sent to users in the CritterCoin app or on the site, rather it is broadcast to any live public monitor that CritterCoin is currently connected with.
To cast a message, sign into CritterCoin...
If on PC, the button will be in your top menu called "Cast Announcement"
If on mobile, tap the CritterCoin icon and locate the "Cast Announcement" option.
Messages can be given an expiration time. When it expires the screen will resume it's normal CritterCoin view.
