Getting Started with Mission Manager
« on: December 17, 2010, 11:07:57 AM »
The Mission Manager system is designed to be very easy for anyone who understands missions to operate.   The system is designed around the standard SAR Incident Command System (ICS) forms and will automatically generate these forms as you enter data.  The system is designed to help you manage the mission from initial callout to finish.  The following are a few basic steps to get you moving quickly:

1. Create a Mission Manager Account here: https://www.radishworks.com/SearchManager/Login.php?Page=Register

2. Add your members to the Members Screen.  You can setup each members login permissions if you want so they can maintain their own information.  Tip: The sample members in your account (Billy Smith (sample), etc.) can be removed by changing their status to "Terminated" or you can delete them with the "Delete" button.

3. Try using the Messaging screen to send emails, text messages or make phone calls to your members.  Note for Phone calls you'll need to set up a Twillio account, see the "Help" button for more information about how to set up a Twillio account.

4. On the Select Mission screen select the sample mission and press the Open Existing Mission button.  Experiment with the various screens to get to know the system.

5. Try creating a new mission on the Fill in the General information about the mission on the General screen.

6. On the Subjects screen create a new subject and fill in all the information about a mission person.

7. A members arrive on scene, have them check in on the Check In screen by entering their ID Number.  Their ID number is set on the members screen.

8. Use the Personal screen to identify key ICS positions such as Incident Commander, Planning and Operations Officers by dragging their names into the appropriate places.

9. Form teams on the Teams screen, by simply dragging searchers into team positions and describing their assignment.  Team assignments can be printed from this screen and given to teams.

10. On the Mapping screen define mission areas and print these maps for the teams.

11. When teams return from the field have them debrief on the Debrief screen.  Don't forget to change a teams status correctly when they finish and assignment and are debriefed, so the members are marked as available.

12. All the ICS forms for a mission can be printed on the Reports screen.

I added 3 other members to help evaluate the program.  When I added them as "new" the program told me that an email notification was sent.  The 3 members tell me they never got an email.  When they ask for a password reset they are told their email is not in the system.  What do I need to do to get them into the system?

Welcome Ed,

First thing to check would be their SPAM filter to see if the activation email got caught there. 

You can also try reseting their account with the "Reset / Resend Member Login" button

Hope that helps, if not let us know.

Regards,
Mike

Thanks for the guidelines!  This would be very helpful for beginners first learning how to navigate and using the application.
