At-a-glance reachability status
- When viewing a person's profile, if you see a lightning bolt next to their name, they're receiving Remind messages as push notifications or texts on their phones—the most effective way to ensure they can see and read your messages.
- If a person's profile has three dots next to their name, they're receiving your messages via email.
- If a person's profile has an X next to their name, they do not have a contact device linked with their Remind account. Or if the individual has a contact device connected to their account, they've opted out of receiving all notifications.
- These individuals need to update their accounts to add a contact device so they can receive messages. If the person has shared their updated contact information with you, you can read the following article to update their contact information from your administrator account: How do I change a participant's contact information?
