News Page - Overview and Examples

Version 10

    This presentation provides a high level overview of configuring news streams for your cloud community.  News provides the ability to push relevant and important communications to targeted audiences throughout your community.  News is surfaced on the News page which can be set as your community's home landing page.  The news page is built on tiles which means it is mobile responsive making this a valuable part of your mobile strategy.

       

      The tiles on the News page can be configured by system administrators with Manage System or Manage News Streams permission by clicking on the Manage the News Page button next to the News link.
