Cadpage and Active911

It turns out that it is possible to run both the Cadpage and Active911 apps to on the same device while processing the same Active911 alerts.

We recommend setting up a "Active911" button so you can launch the Active911 app directly from Cadpage.  To do that, open Cadpage Settings and select
Buttons > Main Button Menu
Select a currently unused button and set it to "Active911".

You do have to be careful to not launch the Active911 app from the home screen.  Doing so will reset alerts so they bypass Cadpage and go to the Active911 app.  But you can safely launch the Active911 app from Cadpage  and it will query their servers and display the latest call information after a short delay.

The Cadpage and Active911 apps are starting to use a different set of parsers to extract information from your dispatch alerts.  Which means they may display different information and may not always map to the same location, which is probably the best reason why you might want to keep both apps active.  Technical details on what is going on can be found at Cadpage and Active911 Parsers.
