Multiple 'Units' for individuals
« on: April 22, 2011, 09:32:55 AM »
My team has some designations that we have called Units in the past, but don't really fit the mold of Units in Mission Manager.  I think a good example would be Operation Leaders (OL) and In-Town Coordinators (ITC).  These are different rolls team members can fill, and OL is actually a qualifications level.  Would it be best to track this in certifications and expirations?  What about messaging?  In our old paging system, we had gang page numbers for OLs and ITCs, which was really handy at times.  Any and all input is appreciated.

This sounds a lot like what we use for Technical Rescue Specialist, or "Tech Rescue Spec" in the Certifications 5 configuration field.  People from any unit can have this cert and this is one of the fields that can be filtered in the Messaging screen.

Is there a way to customize which fields make it onto the filters in the messaging screen?  I couldn't find anything in the configurations page to add one.  My team also has tech specialists and sworn reserves, so I don't think I can sacrifice one of those fields.

There is now :-).  Check the new check boxes in the configuration "Msg Show Only".  All of these fields can now be customized to appear on the messages screen.
