Vocera offers two types of reminders, Text and Voice reminders.
You can create voice reminders using the voice commands from the Vocera badge or text reminders from the User Console.
Vocera system handles the text reminders as text messages and allows you to create a text reminder from the Reminders page in the User Console. All text reminders have a character limit of 115 characters. For more information on using text reminders from the User Console, see the Reminders section in the Vocera Voice Server User Console Guide
Voice reminders are processed as voice messages. You can use your Vocera badge to create voice reminders. Voice reminders are played on your badge at the scheduled time. For more information on using voice reminders, see the Recording Voice Reminders section in the Vocera Badge User Guide.
