FrontlineSMS version 1 - Help files in PDF?

Hi everyone,I will be doing some training with an aboriginal community that will be using FrontlineSMS to support a children's camp in their community. As part of the training, I would like to provide them with some how-to documents. The Help documents (in HTML) in the program itself are great. Does anyone have these documents as a PDF rather than this HTML version?Thanks!See More

Reminders function issue - version 1

I have searched back on some older discussion posts regarding the Reminders function, but didn't quite see a solution to my issue. Our project is based on an academic (University of Alberta's MARS Lab) and community agency partnership that hopes to improve social support and information access for local sex trade workers here in our city. Community partners each have their own SMS message that we want to run on a rotating schedule. We have it all set up so that the reminder is sent to Test…See More

Using FrontlineSMS to address the needs of people with disabilities and their families in Colombia

I want to take a moment to share about a collaborative, community-based research project between the University of Alberta (Edmonton, Canada), the University of Rosario (Bogota, Colombia) and the community of El Codito in northern Bogota. El Codito is a mountainside community located on the perimeter of Bogota, characterized by low socio-economic status, limited access to municipal services such as electricity and sewage, and high crime rates. People in El Codito, especially people with…See More

I am interested in using FrontlineSMS to distribute health information for a population of people with disabilities who live in an under-resourced community in Bogota, Colombia.
Tell us about you. (Please also add an image to your profile)
I am a graduate student at the University of Alberta in the department of Rehabilitation Science. I am researching the use of basic mobile phones to improve access to health information and decrease social isolation for people with disabilities and their families in Colombia. This research is a collaborative effort between the University of Alberta and the Universidad del Rosario in Bogota, Colombia.
The implementation phase is planned to begin August 2012.
