When a user's anonymity is removed by their assigned responder, the following process takes place:
The responder clicks on the "Remove Anonymity" option from their screen.
The responder selects the message that indicates the concerning behavior.
The responder selects the reason for the anonymity being removed.
The user's identity is revealed and the responder may move forward with your school or organization's policies and procedures for addressing the situation.
When the anonymity is removed, a report is sent to the Waves Dashboard for further review by the Network Admin.
On the "Reported Messages" screen of the Waves Dashboard, you will find a record of each reported message that includes the following information on the situation:
The name of the responder making the report.
The name of the user and their uder ID.
The date and time the report was made.
A record of the actual message from the user that was reported.
The "waves" of the conversation at that time.
This allows administration to be keep a record of concerning behavior within their network and ensures that responders are not abusing the anonymity feature by removing a user's anonymity and violating their privacy for unethical reasons.
