Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I keep my phone on silent during the day / while I am at work. How will I be notified of a message?
A: The messages generated through the Rave Panic Button app are sent via in-app message. If the in-app message fails to deliver, or if you are using a phone without the app, an SMS text will be sent. In both cases, an email will also be delivered. If your phone is set to silent, then you will not receive an audible notification of a message. Some phones allow a user to specify a specific tone for an individual contact. All SMS text messages generated by the Rave Panic Button app come from short code 22911. If your phone allows for notification preference settings for individual contacts, then you can add 22911 to your contacts and set specific notification preferences for that number. When your phone is set to an audible setting, the in-app notifications sent by Rave Panic Button are received with a unique alert tone.
Q: RAVE App does not recognize my cell phone number
A: Check in the front office oif your school to verify they have the correct cell phone number entered for you in RAVE. The offices have to enter your cell phone number in the RAVE system prior to you registering your phone.
Q: I entered the verification code to confirm my phone and the RAVE system did not seem to accept my code.
A: If your verification code does not work for what ever reason. Close the app and start the confirmation process over and request another code be sent to your phone
