School OpenCheck status can now be updated by text.
Schools that subscribe to AutoText and have message credits available can now update their OpenCheck status by text message.
The person making the change needs to have a mobile phone registered to their USO account and must also have the appropriate permissions enabled in their account profile. Users that meet these criteria can then simply text the school’s status message to the specified number. If the status change is successful, a confirmation message gets sent to the sender’s mobile. This costs one credit. If the status change fails no charge is made.
