Broadcast messages are useful when the fishery department or the boat owner wants to send out an important message to multiple boats or users and does not expect a response.
Broadcast list is a predefined list of boats or users that can be selected as a recipient when sending a broadcast message. To learn how to create such a list, read 'How to create a broadcast list?'
With the 'Fisheries' application selected through the App switcher, select the 'Messages' tab on the menu
Click on 'Broadcast List' link on top of the conversation list.
Select one of the broadcast lists
Type your message and click on 'arrow' icon (or hit 'enter') to send the message
This message will be delivered to the boats and any fishermen connected to the Skylo hubs on those boats through the mobile app will receive the message.
Tip: The tip below the text input field, helps you understand the number of bytes (or English characters) remaining, as you type.
