Communication Message Types

Activate Teams

iluminr gives you the power to activate your response teams and understand who is available at the click of a button.

When you send your activation message, each selected team member will receive your message content (this is sent both as an email alert and an SMS alert).

Your message will also ask the team members to confirm their availability to respond to the team activation. Learn more at Activate Teams Process.


Communicate with stakeholders with two-way messaging.

The response required option allows for open replies to be received from your message recipients facilitating a broad range of information gathering.

Disabling the response required option allows for one notification to be issued instructing or advising your stakeholders of an update or directive.


Create poll messages to collect a greater range of information from your stakeholders at any time, such as their current work location or a location they visited in the past week.

You can use the default YES/NO responses:

OR create up to 5 custom response options:
