Scheduling Text Messages in User Console, Staff Assignment and Vocera Messaging
I would like to request an enhancement to the user console "send a Text Message" feature. I would like the option to set up future delivery of a text message.
For example, lets say it is Friday and I know on Sunday the hospital is going to have a wireless downtime at 0200. I would like to set up a text message to be delivered at 0130 (30 minutes prior to the scheduled downtime) a reminder to all Vocera users that Vocera will not be available from 0200-0245 for a "wireless upgrade" or whatever is going on.
I would also like the option to be able to cancel a future message (prior to delivery of course) if for some reason the downtime is canceled I can retract the message.
Since I know that not all users will be logged on at this time, have a setting so that this message is only delivered to active users or there is a setting so you can expire or remove all undelivered messages". That way if the downtime is done at 0245, users logging on at 0800 would not receive this message.
