Helpful Tips

  • The first words of the Body will display on the homepage, so make it important.
  • Always start with about a few sentences of text. If you add a table or bulleted list near the beginning, it will not appear.
  • Expires = the day it disappears from the homepage.
  • URL = if you leave this blank, users can view the full Body of the announcement. Add a web address to link the title to another website.
  • To edit or delete an existing announcement, find it under Site Contents > Announcements. Hover over the title. Click on the 3 vertical dots to the right. Click Edit or Delete.
