System Announcements

Ever notice how DevResults occasionally posts site announcements in banners at the top of your site?

Note: You can hide individual system announcements by clicking the Got it button on the right.

Users (with permission to edit Program Settings) can also use announcements to communicate deadlines, milestones, or news to your DevResults users. Here's how:

Navigate to Tools >  System Announcements.

On the System Announcements page, click into the next empty row to add a title, the message text, and the appear/disappear dates. Click the checkbox for "display" when you're ready to show it to users. 

Advanced Settings

You can also use regular html to add links and email addresses to your system announcements. There are plenty of resources available online for html formatting, but here are a couple samples:

Add a linkto your announcement:

<a href='https://www.your-url.com'>Text shown to reader</a>

If you want the link to open in a separate window when someone clicks on it, you can add target='_blank'

<a href='https://www.your-url.com' target='_blank'>Text shown to reader</a>

Sample:

Here's the example above with a link to the blog post:
