Getting started

I'm giving us a year to start using frontline in combination with crowdmap to monitor what we're calling "guide species" in the Netherlands to promote conservation and nature management. I'm convinced there's a difference between existing species databases and the potential of frontline and crowdmap to monitor crucial "guide species." We're asking our users to be slightly more intelligent than usual in the field, but allowing them to respond much more quickly. And we intend to respond (relay… Continue

Update on a public release of the FamilyFIRST domestic violence sytem

About a year ago, I developed a system around FrontlineSMS called FamilyFIRST. FamilyFIRST was developed to allow domestic violence agencies to provide better services to victims by allowing them to report incidents silently via a simple SMS message. It also allowed victims in crisis to immediately summon the police or make contact with a crisis intervention worker without the need to actually make a phone call.


Since the implementation of the system, I've gotten a lot of…

GSM modem for Haiti & USA?

Hi all, hello from a new member!


Anyone have recommendations for a tried-and-tested (yet still commercially available!) GSM modem that'll work in both Haiti (deployment site) and the United States (demo & development site)?


Ease of setup is not so much a concern as is robustness. We have reasonably deep technical capacity.


It's for a system where we'll be collecting basic information from the field (kind of like…

Technical Assistance Needed - Frontline Hanging

I’m with the Clinton Health Access Initiative in Malawi. We’re piloting Frontline SMS at 4 rural health centers to follow up patients when they miss appointments and to notify them when to return for test results.



One of the laptops keeps hanging while using Frontline. The last three times it hung we were saving a contact, sending a sms, and displaying the configuration location. There doesn't seem to be a pattern. I…

Improving automation of FL on Ubuntu Linux

Hi all,



First I would like to thank all FL developers and community for this nice tool and all the resources available on this blog.

I installed last version on FL (1.6.12) on a Ubuntu 10.4 with a Nokia 3220 and a USB cable CA-42.

Will Frontline SMS do this? -store and send out messages according to the number received on a certain subject

The scenario:



There is to be a meeting but how many people can attend? - perhaps none - perhaps many.



What I would like to do is for people to be able to send a message to say if they will attend. Then for that message to be stored until a certain time. Then if there are a certain number of messages collected ( a quorum for the meeting) then all those people will be sent a message to say that the meeting will go ahead.



Is there any facility in the software that will… Continue
