Release Note Info/Steps
- Create a new Announcement or edit an existing one
- In the 'Information' section for the Announcement, enter a Priority number
- 1 will make the Announcement display first, 2 second, and so on
No two priority numbers can be used at the same time. If there is an existing priority 1 Announcement, it will need to be changed to 2 or another number before the new number 1 can be assigned.
Announcements with no priority number will be displayed in order of date created, newest first.
- Save changes to the Announcement(s)
