MRM Patrol is on its own tracking system called Homebase. Homebase allows us to not only track hours but to also message one or more people, and to arrange for shift coverage directly. Here are links to a couple You Tube videos that may help you orient to the new system. Intro to HOMEBASE for general information, MESSAGING YOUR SHIFT can be helpful for important news as well as for simple items like what folks are bringing to the potluck. GETTING SHIFT COVERAGE will help you set up for swaps or other coverage.
