Announcements, unlike stories or events, are short blurbs. They are timely pieces that usually alert users to happenings around campus. Learn how to make and display one here.
All About Announcements
Announcements can be displayed in several ways on a page.
They can be displayed in the left sidebar, body controller area or right sidebar, see example displays below:
Create an Announcement
Click on your "Content Dashboard".
Choose "Add an Announcement".
Fill out the Basic Content you want on the page. The red asterisks are required fields you must fill out. If you would like to include "Contact" information for the Announcement, fill that out after the "Body" information.
Step 4 & 5
Choose a "Groups Audience" for the specific departments that you want to see your Announcement. Choose whether or not you would like the Announcement to be Private in step 5.
Step 6 (Optional)
Once you have finished entering your "Basic Content" you can select the "Layout" tab to add or remove items from your right sidebar.
Click the "Save" button in the top right hand corner once you are finished.
You can now view your new Announcement. Congrats!
