AN ASSORTED COLLECTION OF INFORMATION

Click on the title bar to expand and you can read / review information about the following titles below.

Is there any way to select to be notified by EITHER Cell OR Email? I keep getting BOTH, and would prefer to select one only.

Yes, if you want e-mail only, place 2035555555 as your cell number. To get only cell text place your number in 2301234567 and then in the e-mail spot, do not place a valid e-mail address.

I received an e-Notification but when I went to the site, nothing was there. Why is that?

Users will post messages to test the IAN system, especially at the beginning of a winter season and then they remove the test message. We do ask they keep the test message up but if you go to the site and there is no message, it is because they were testing the system and removed the test message.

I signed up but do not know what to do now.

Go to the main menu under Notifications and click on E-Notifications from the drop down menu. On that page you can log in and enter your user name and password then click on submit. You will then be taken to the page where you can add cell phones for text and e-mail addresses as well as choose the locations you wish to be notified about.

I signed up for text messages but do not get any.

Please check that you did not place a dash between the numbers and that you selected a cell phone provider. Numbers should be entered like this: 2031234567

How do I change my e-mail address?

To change your e-mail address you will have to go to E-notifications and access your account page and there you can change, add, or subtract an e-mail.
