Company Alerts let you create a system wide message that your users will see on their dashboard once they are logged into the system as well as being emailed to your staff members. You can set Start and End dates on Alerts so they can be become available, and then expire accordingly.
They appear as a red circle on the Icon Bar in the Mail Icon and also in the bottom right hand corner of your Dashboard under Company Messages.
Once you have saved the alert you can then decide which users see the alert, by using the Groups tab. You also have the option here to specify which user roles, within groups can see the alerts, For Example, you may only want the Approvers in Accounts to see this Alert.
There is also the option to distribute the Alert by email to the users specified above. (this is based on the email addresses entered in the system)
