Home page messages allow you to create informational banners that are being presented to users right after they log in, on the top of the home page.
If there's some content you don't want to be missed - links to trainings, information about your organization, reminders about important documents - home page messages are perfect for displaying them.
To create one, just go to Manage/Communication/Home page messages. There, click on "Add message".
That will move you to creating the message: defining its name, content and deciding when it will be shown.
When editing the content, you can use a simple editor that allows you to change the font - its size, color etc., add links and images.
You can decide what will happen to the message when the user clicks on it. Options are: expanding the message, opening the link in the same window or in the new one and opening a popup window.
If you choose one of the options regarding links, the platform will ask you to enter the URL you want the users to be redirected to.
If you choose popup instead, you'll have to configure it - enter the content and choose the background image.
Last step when creating the messages is defining its recipients. It works just like assigning users to elements - you can choose people by name or add whole groups of users - you can do it in "Recipients" and "Groups of recipients" tabs.
