System Settings: Customize the homepage alert boxes

In this article

The Alerts box is a great way to communicate with your colleagues in LibInsight. When a user visits the LibInsight homepage, an alert box will appear at the top. Think of this as a bulletin board where you can share updates, policies, contact info, links -- or just about anything else you may think is helpful for people to know. In LibInsight you have to option to add two custom alert messages -- one for all users and one that is only visible to Admins.
