Super Users will have the ability to create unique deployments, or groups of OUs, that follow the settings set within Beacon. Each deployment will have a unique Escalation List customized for that deployment.
Note: We recommend creating each deployment by school, grade level, building, or any other custom preferences determined by your counselors, administration and/or crisis management team to handle the recommended configurations for each Escalation List.
There is no limit on the number of OUs that can be added to a single deployment. However, in order to effectively manage your OUs and alerts, we recommend keeping this limited to a manageable number of OUs.
Note: While there is no limit to the number of OUs for a single deployment, each OU can only be part of one deployment.
Deployments will first need to be created in Org Management (manage.goguardian.com) by a Super User.
- As a Super User, log into manage.goguardian.com
- Click on the Products tab
- Click on Beacon Settings on the left
Creating a New Deployment

NOTE: Upon creating a new deployment, the Super User must log into Beacon and add at least one user to the Escalation List to be notified if a report is triggered.
