Message Board

The Message Board is the first thing your users will see when they log in to CLASS, and it is customisable. Different centres use this feature for different things, including reminders of events, links to the CLASS Online Guide, or just friendly greeting messages!

The Message board is divided in two halves. The left side is the "CLASS Message" which is any important updates from the CLASS Helpdesk. It is worth checking here for any issues, or scheduled updates. The right hand side is the Centre Message which is editable by your centres CLASS administrator for centre specific messaging. 

Editing Message Board

Step 1. Click on Tools >Message Board.

Step 2. Ensure you are on the correct Design / Preview setting - found in the bottom left corner of the edit panel. Similar to all Note type fields in CLASS, when Design is selected, new text and URL links can be added using the Editing tools (shown two images below) . Then, change to the Preview setting when you are ready to test what it looks like, or for example, ensure the link is clickable and takes the user to the correct location.
