Announcements are a way to broadcast important messages and updates to your members. You can set publish start and end times for each announcement so that your messaging is current.
It is recommended that Announcements are only used for relaying important communications to your members.
To add an announcement to your portal, go to Portal > Announcements, in your Operate main menu.
If this is the first announcement in the system, you will see a Get Started button. Otherwise, simply click New to proceed.
If you wish the Announcement to be displayed on ALL locations, leave the location field as Not Specified. Otherwise, simply select your desired location.
Select the publish date & time (when you want it to appear on the portal)
Select the expiry date and time (when it should be removed)
Use the editor to create your Announcement message, the announcement will be added to the page in a block in the center top of the page. There is CSS formatting applied automatically which can be over-ridden with the "!important" tag e.g. if you want to add an image with an absolute size <img src="http://" style="width: 100px!important; height: 100px!important;">
Save your changes and you're done!
Once you have announcements set up, you can edit them using the green pencil icon on the left; or delete it using the red 'x" icon.
