How to Add Notifications
1. ClassLink Management Console -> Notifications.
2. Click the green Add button.
3. Enter a Title, Message, Start Date and End Date of the notification.
4. Click Save.
5. Click the Assign button to select specific Profiles or Groups or apply to All Users.
You have the option to always display a message when users logins in by switching ON the toggle under Always Show.
Note: Even if a user closes the notification, it will appear again every time they log in.
Changes to Read Status and Reports
Making changes to a notification (title, content, date) would flag the notification as unread for any users who have previously read it.
You may set notifications in advance by setting a start date. Any notifications set in the future will not appear until the designated start date.
Reports show what users have read a notification, and at what time. These reports can be downloaded as a CSV file.
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.
