Why should I make sure DIR-S is up-to-date on my mobile and desktop devices?
The answer is simple.
Every update to DIR-S increases its ability to add value to you and your school, and every update brings with it benefits that help you keep you and your staff safe.
What makes it especially important that you check to make sure your DIR-S is up to date is the fact that some older versions of DIR-S have limited communication with newer versions. This can cause some discrepancy between our latest features being limited by an outdated version.
To ensure you are up to date on your mobile app, search “DIR-S” in the App Store (Google or Apple). If it says “update” then you need to click that to update your app. If it says “open” that indicates that you have the most current version of DIR-S. You can also allow auto-updates for DIR-S, so every time we release an update, you will automatically download and install it.
To check what version of DIR-S you are working with on the desktop, right-click the DIR-S icon in your toolbar (Windows or Mac). You will then see info pop up. The most recent version is 5.0.3. If you need the latest version please email your IT team or email@example.com

Did you tune in for today’s DIR-S Live on our YouTube channel??
Today, we did a deep dive into the new user interface of DIR-S v.5, specifically ensuring that your account is set up correctly.
One of the main themes of this edition of DIR-S Live, which we have talked at much length in many posts and videos is the importance of using DIR-S regularly to develop the muscle memory necessary to maximize your efficacy with DIR-S when faced with a real emergency situation.
In case studies which have been featured on our blog and social posts, we have shown what a difference in reaction time school sare able to have when their users are proficient with DIR-S. Situations that otherwise might have taken an hour or more to resolve are now able to be resolved in a matter of minutes, all thanks to DIR-S.
DIR-S makes it possible to boost situational awareness during emergency situations among all pertinent parties more than has been possible ever before!
Now that DIR-S v.5 brings the DIR-S features to you whether or not you are in an active alert, there are even more possibilities for you.
In our communications with DIR-S users, we have found that having a good and reliable communication platform that would work just as well during an alert as during the normal runnings of the day was a big pain point for many organizations. This need was made especially severe when so many organizations are working both remotely and in person.
These updates come out of a desire to ensure that DIR-S is constantly improving and meeting more of the issues that our clients are facing.
Feel free to contact us at any time for questions about DIR-S and how it can be a benefit to your organization.
