Banners are used to share information with users on the main page.
Banners are a great way to share important content that can’t be missed: training links, company updates, charity campaigns, and essential documents.
Configuring banners starts in the Banners tab (Communicate section). Begin by clicking the “Add banner” button:
You’ll be redirected to a banner configuration form. Here you can define the header, the content, and the time range for displaying the banner.
When editing the content, you can also customize the font, add links or images.
Then, you move on to assign the banner to a specific communication tile.
Next, you decide what’s going to happen when the user clicks the banner. Available options include:
- Opening the link in a new window
- Opening the link in the same window
- Displaying a pop-up window
If you choose one of the options with links, you’ll need to enter the address in the Link field:
If you choose the pop-up option, you’ll be asked to configure it. Enter the pop-up content, add a background image and decide whether it should be displayed right after the user logs in.
Last but not least, you get to decide who’s going to see the banner. It works like adding assignments to educational objects. You can select users or groups at once, using the Recipients and Recipient groups tabs. Click “Add user” or “Add group” and select users or groups who are supposed to see the banner.
