notice listing

Create a Notice

Notices are temporary updates to anything relevant to a single site.  They are usually listed on the home page for a department's website.

There are two aspects to a notice, the notice itself and the page which lists the notice. There is an 'active' folder for notices. Web pages listing notices will display the notice listing, only when there is a notice in the 'active' folder.

Once a notice is created you should publish both the notice and the pages that list notices for your site.
