More about using the StoryAnywhere feature 

  • If your story isn't able to be sent in the mobile app, check you have data coverage. If you don't, send a TXT message to 4164. 
  • If you get the message: 'Sorry you are not connected to any Organisations with StoryAnywhere enabled', or no organisations appear when you click on Story Anywhere in the App (or the organisation you need to send an alert to) then your organisation hasn't enabled the Story Anywhere App. A PeopleSafe Coordinator will need to enable the App by going to your Organisation Name > Our Organisation > Options > Edit. Scroll down to Preferences > StoryAnywhere via Mobile App Enabled. Change to Yes.

    • The StoryAnywhere story is saved in PeopleSafe and can be found in the Stories section
