    Hi Jody,

    Thanks for reaching out! If you are a member of a team account, the SMS Locator function allows you to send a short text to a lost person's cell phone number and then display their location in SARTopo. You can learn more about SMS Locators on this page of our user guide: https://training.caltopo.com/all_users/team-accounts/sms

    Best,
    Meghan

    My apologies but I originally sent the wrong link above- the correct link for the SMS locators page in our user guide is this one: https://training.caltopo.com/all_users/team-accounts/sms
