Dashboard Messages

Dashboard messages allow you to communicate to groups of people at CSUMB through their Dashboard. These groups can be people with the same role (e.g. student, staff, faculty) or a list of specific CSUMB usernames.

Steps for creating a dashboard message

  1. Obtain permission to create a dashboard message by emailing webservices@csumb.edu
  2. Go to the page you'd like the dashboard message to link to. If a page doesn't exist, you'll need to create a new page because all dashboard messages must link to a page.
  3. Select Edit from the blue gear in the upper right corner
  4. Click on the Dashboard Message tab.
  5. Check Publish to Dashboard.
  6. Add a Headline and Message. NOTE: Your heading and message should be short and to the point. The goal is to drive the user to click the read more button, which would take them to the web page containing the full message.
  7. Add start and end Publish Dates.
  8. Select which User Groups should see this message or copy and paste in a list of CSUMB usernames.
  9. Save your page.
  10. Visit the Dashboard to see how it looks.
