Safety information is constantly changing. The AppArmor safety platform allows you to make real-time changes to the safety information in your app. Now is a great time to review your safety app and make certain everything is accurate. To help, here’s a list of common items that should be reviewed as you prepare for back-to-school:

  1. Campus Resource Content

    Your mobile safety app gives users information about what to do in an emergency, emergency procedures, and other important safety information. Emergency protocols can change depending on a variety of factors. This means that as soon as there's an update with your campus safety information, the content in the app needs to be updated as well.

  2. User Accounts

    The AppArmor Dashboard allows for an unlimited amount of users to manage the app with different user permissions. Within any organization, staff move around and change roles. If a staff member moves to a different department or leaves the organization, their login credentials should be removed. If a staff member takes on more responsibilities with the safety app, their user permissions can be easily updated in the dashboard. Make sure your staff have the access rights they need to effectively manage your mobile safety app.

  3. Feature Updates

    Our technology is constantly improving; make sure you take advantage of this with your safety app. We regularly update the AppArmor Dashboard and your app features. It’s important to be aware of these updates so you can inform your staff of changes that affect them. Check out our previous blog posts and the support tab in your AppArmor Dashboard for the latest updates.

  4. Regular Marketing Towards Students

    Your mobile safety app helps keep your campus safe. The more downloads you have, the safer your campus will be. Continuous marketing is a necessary part of managing your app in order to get more downloads. This also gives you a chance to see what marketing tactics get the most amount of downloads. Make certain you’ve prepared your marketing materials for back-to-school.

Your safety app is a big part of your campus’s safety resources. That's why the app’s content should be updated with every modification. The same goes with updating your staff about changes to the dashboard and user permissions. Timely app adjustments are important to keep your campus safe.
