Business Description

This module allows you to create news that will be displayed to the user after logging into the system. You can create two types of news in the system: reminders and announcements.

Announcement is displayed to user only once after logging into the system. The person which creates them chooses the date of its publication. On the displayed announcement, user sees only the Close button. After clicking it, the news will not be displayed to the user again after logging into the system.

Reminder appears from the moment it is published until it is archived. On the reminder displayed, user can choose the Close or Don't Show It To Me Again buttons. After clicking the Close button, the reminder will appear every time user logs into the system, until the news is archived or user clicks the Don't Show It To Me Again button.

Here you can read more about creating and publishing News.

Information about which users read the news is stored in the User's News module. It is a read-only, technical module.
