An “Alert” becomes an “Action Alert” when it is going to have a public hearing, work session, or a floor vote. The alert must be posted first, instructions for posting an "alert" can be found by clicking here.
There are extra fields for an action alert in the “more fields” area of your posting page. When you learn one of these kinds of events is going to happen, go back to your post and edit it; scroll down to the “More Fields” area and type in what the alert is (see prompt help under field for what and how to type).
Fill in the field for the date and time of the event, and field for the room number, following the format as described under the corresponding field.
You will want this new update to be sent to Facebook and Twitter, so be sure to click on the “repost” button for each. Do not change any of the other settings in this area.
Be sure to click "Update" in the publish box in the upper right of your screen.
Throughout the Session: Update Alerts as to their final standing (needs to be done before they can be archived).
