System Settings: Customize the admin alert box on the LibStaffer dashboard

In this article

Think of the Admin Alert Box like a bulletin board in your staff lounge: it allows you to easily share news and notes with your colleagues. When a user logs into LibAnswers, they'll see the alert box right at the top of the dashboard. You can use this to remind local staff of certain procedures, new features, documentation or training links, or anything else you think is important to share.
