Rained Out - Setup
The Williamsport H.O.G chapter has adopted the use of "RainedOut" for ride and event cancellation notices to our members. This is a "Free" web based text notification system developed by OMNILERT LLC.
Please note that data you enter is protected from view with no exceptions. What does this mean? It means that any cell phone number, email address or other information you decide to provide cannot be viewed from the admin or other users of this system for any reason.
The basic functionality of this application is to support a dedicated "Group" of users in the communication of event cancellations via text messaging.
An individual can gain access to this system by texting a "Keyword" to a text based "Short Code" number (84483). Once you have registered via the short code method identified above, you will then be able to receive cancellations for rides and events as they occur.
Cancellations will be communicated to subscribed members by one of the following chapter officers:
- Chapter Director
- Assistant Director
- Senior Road Captain
To setup RainedOut via "Short Code"
- From your smart phone, text the keyword "whd1544" to (84483). The keyword is case sensitive and must be entered all lower case.
- Enter 84483 where you would normally put the phone number
- Enter whd1544 where you would normally place your text message info
- Press send
- Upon completion you will receive "You have successfully added to your subscription" You will now be able to receive cancellations notices that are sent to all registered members. If you have any questions, or need assistance, please let Brian B, or a chapter officer know.
Note to Sprint Users
Some users of Sprint have had an issue sending shortcodes. To fix this issue, Sprint has offered a self service approach to allow their users to block/unblock short codes. Follow this step-by-step guide to help you solve the problem should you encounter it.
