Adding a banner

Banners are a key focus area on the main dashboard and typically contain an important call to action. Banners draw attention to activities, blogs, groups with a key awareness day/week/month, or any other community news.

Banners can be visible to all members or targeted to specific segmentation groups. Multiple banners can be published at once to different segmentation groups. If you're a program administrator, you may be able to see more than one banner at a time, however, members only see those targeted to them.


Only program administrators can create banners.
