DIR-S Version 5 is here, and it is looking good!
As you can see, DIR-S has received a big makeover. The changes are not all cosmetic though. We have spent many hours working on DIR-S to make it even more suited to be an asset to schools. This is made even more important due to the current situations schools are facing.
You can now use DIR-S to contact others in your school no matter what is going on in the school, whether there is an active alert going on (red), a drill (light blue), or if all is well (dark blue).
The chat board now functions very similarly to other communication platforms you will have used in the past. You can make groups with other users, have individual conversations, and when there is an alert or drill started DIR-S automatically starts a school-wide alert chat as it has always done.
With so many schools and other organizations working so much remotely in combination with the traditional in-person work, it is that much more important for all users to be able to remain in regular contact with each other.
Now that DIR-S v.5 has been officially released, keep a close eye on our social media platforms because we will be going into greater detail on the new updates and features DIR-S brings with it in the coming weeks.
DIR-S continues to add value no matter the circumstances of the organization!
Since the school year began, we have been elaborating extensively on the ways DIR-S can be a benefit whether you are meeting in person, remotely, or a combination of the two.
We are happy to report that DIR-S has been used more than ever before because many of our schools are being so proactive with it and seeing ways that it can be used to keep everyone safe and connected, no matter the situation.
Make sure and keep an eye, not only on your DIR-S app but on our posts in the near future! We will be rolling out DIR-S v.5 soon, and it is bringing with it even more features and benefits that will make DIR-S lend itself, even more, to use whether or not there is an active alert going on!
Thank you all for being part of the DIR-S community!
