Councils frequently need to push new and time-critical information, whether it's school closures caused by snow or changes to COVID-19 regulations.
Site Alerts let staff create attention-grabbing banners containing information. These banners come in a range of styles to reflect the urgency of the content. They can be restricted to show only in a specific section, page, or shown on the whole site.
To create a Site Alert:
- Go to Configuration -> System -> Manage site alerts,
- Click +Add Site Alert,
- Set the name and the alert content,
- You also have the option to schedule its publishing and/or unpublishing, and set the specific URLs for it to appear or be hidden on,
- Click Save.
There are four different styles of Site Alert on Public Platform: Info, Success, Warning, and Emergency.
