Keep your patrons up-to-date with BULLETINS - scheduled pop-up messages that can be used to inform subscribers of important updates, promote specific content for the day, highlight strategic partnerships, and any number of creative uses to build greater engagement and connection with your audience in a virtual space.
1. Enabling and Creating Bulletins
Bulletins are an optional feature that can be turned on by navigating to SITE SETTINGS > OPTIONAL FEATURES > scroll down to enable. "Bulletins" will then appear as an option in the left hand navigation within the Utilities section.
To create a bulletin, choose "Bulletins" from the left hand navigation and click the red New button. In the modal window, complete the Title, Date and Info fields and then save. To edit a bulletin later, simply click on it from the list of scheduled bulletins, update any of the necessary fields, and save.
When the "Posted Date" is reached, the bulletin scheduled for that day will pop up on screen immediately after a subscriber logs in to the web portal. After the subscriber has dismissed the bulletin, the pop up will not appear to them again even if they log out and then back in later in the day.
