  • Click on the Actions menu (gear) at the top of the right side of the screen and Add Bulletin Board.
  • Give it a unique name, and if it is time specific you can enter a date range.


To add Bulletins:

  • Click the plus (+) icon at the bottom left.
  • Enter a name, and a date range if necessary.
  • You have the options to add a URL and an image for this bulletin.
  • Change the color with the drop down menu.
  • Click on Save.

You can also customize your bulletins with HTML. See Customize Bulletins with HTML5 for more.
