Viewing the Announcements List
You can use announcements to share information with your users. For instance, you may wish to inform them about an update to an application on a specific date or about scheduled downtime.
Announcements can be published in the App Store or sent via email to one or more target users.
This short guide will show you step by step how to:
View Announcements List
Using your preferred web browser, navigate to the URL for your Apporto system, for example, “mycollege.apporto.com”, and log in to the system using your Admin credentials.
Click the Announcements icon in the Navigation panel.
The ‘Announcements’ screen displays.
The Announcements screen shows a list of all currently active announcements. Each entry in the list shows the TITLE of the announcement, the name of the user that created the announcement (AUTHOR NAME), and the date and time at which the announcement was initially published (DATE PUBLISHED).
If desired, you can use the Filter function to search for a specific announcement by TITLE.
Click the Filter link
The screen refreshes and the ‘Search Content’ pane displays.
Enter the term you wish to search for in the Search Content text box.
When you search for an announcement, the system reads the word(s) in your search term as a string of characters (rather than as separate words), and searches for occurrences of the text string anywhere in the announcement TITLE. For example, the search term “admin” would include the results “Administrator” and “Administration.”
The screen refreshes to display only those announcements that contain your search term in the announcement TITLE.
Click the Reset button to clear the Search Content text box and return to the full ‘Announcements’ list.
