Our implementation of the New Notifications feature is one that has been repeatedly requested by everyone, and guess what? Now we've got it!
With the Notification feature, now you can get all of your vital information to everyone who needs to see it! You can input anything you'd like into the Notifications area with a few simple clicks. Below you'll find the steps on how to create, edit, and activate Notifications.
|1||Open the ClassLink Management Console|
In the left-hand panel, locate Notifications
|3||Then click the green "Add" button|
|4||Now, choose your title, body, Start Date, and End Date of the notification you wish to be displayed and click "Save"|
|5||Now select who you want to see the Notification. You can choose to assign to specific Profiles, Groups, Users, or apply to All Users|
You have the option to always display a message when users logins in.
ClassLink Management Console (CMC) -> Notifications -> Switch On the toggle under Always Show.
Even if a user closes the notification, it will appear again every time they log in.
Changes to Read Status
Making changes to a notification (title, content, date) will now flag the notification as unread for any users who have previously read it.
You may now set notifications in advance by setting a start date. Any notifications set in the future will not appear until the designated start date.
In order to keep school IT administrators up to date with the latest news and announcements, we have added the ability for ClassLink to broadcast global notifications to all users who are members of the "tenant administrators" profile.
Notifications from ClassLink are indicated by a 'star' icon in the notification area.
