In this post we are going to discuss “Site Notice Dashlet”. This dashlet can be used to send some important notice to all site members quickly. For instance there is an important announcement to be made to all site members then site admin can use this dashlet to draft their massage and send it across.
Let us see how it works.
Login as site administrator, Configure dashboard to add Site Notice dashlet to dashboard
Click on link “Configure this dashlet” on that dashlet.
NOTE: This link will only be available to site admin that is the reason I have mentioned to login as site admin in step1.
Clicking on link will open up popup where you could feed in announcements. I have typed sample message here. Admin will be able to give some nice look and feel to message using that small html editor.
Log out from admin account and login as normal site member. You will be able to see the message which was given by site administrator.
This comes in very handy to all site admins if they want to broadcast some important message to all site members. For instance there is likely to be downtime for server then they can inform all site members to manage their activities accordingly.
