U-M’s ResponsiBLUE app is once again being updated and will soon include a quarantine and isolation indicator for students, an additional question in the daily symptom tracking questionnaire and a number of usability improvements based on feedback from the community. 

“As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, we will continue to make updates and improvements to the ResponsiBLUE app that best support the health and safety of the campus community,” said Jim Behm, executive director for enterprise application services in Information and Technology Services.

To reduce confusion related to users seeing a red “X” upon opening the app — which is typically the result of the expiration of the user’s previously completed symptom check — a yellow indicator box that reads ‘Start Screening Check’ will now prompt the user to complete the questionnaire. Once the questions have been answered, the status of the screening check indicator will immediately update and turn green for the following 18 hours.
