How to check for Responses

Checking Positive Responses (+Response) can be done the following ways

  1. Visit DigAlert.org, click Web Services on the menu, then click "Check Positive Response"
  2. Using the mobile app, click the Positive Response menu item
  3. If an email address was supplied on the ticket and permission was given to send messages, an email will be sent at the time +Responses are due with all available responses. Additional emails will be sent each time a member submits a new response or updates a response after the due date/time.
  4. If a cell phone number was supplied on the ticket and permission was given to send text messages, a text message will be sent at the time +Responses are due with all available responses.  Additional text messages will be sent each time a member submits a new response or updates a response after the due date/time.

Important Information!

+Response through the center IS NOT REQUIRED. This means that not all members will choose to utilize this service at this time. Members may choose to respond to the center, respond directly to the excavator or both.

How to check +Responses manually
