    Pivot Admin: Creating In-App Announcements

    • Product: Pivot


    Admin Announcements

    Administrators with this feature have the ability to create announcements for users at their institution that will appear at the top of the screen when they log in to Pivot. 

    To create an announcement:

    1. Click on the Admin link at the top of your Pivot Home Page
    2. Click Institutional Settings
    3. Select Announcements

    If you have previously created any announcements they will be listed under Current Announcements. Click Add Announcement to create a new announcement.  You can enter your announcement of up to 400 characters using the editing tools to bold, italicize or hyperlink text.   By default the announcement will appear the date you create the announcement and will expire in 30 days; however, you can specify a start date and an end date for your announcement to appear.  Once you have finalized the announcement and dates click Add

    When users access Pivot, they will see notification at the top of the page that there is a new announcement:

    When users click on the red number they will see the announcement.   Users must be logged in to Pivot to dismiss the red notification badge.
