The Prime Alerts widget allows you to display site-wide alerts and messaging to all users or select target audiences on a Prime enabled site. After an alert has been read, it can be hidden by the user until a new alert is issued. An Alert may also be edited which will then automatically place that Alert at the top.
Requirements and Activation
The Alerts widget requires that the Prime master page has been applied before use. For a step-by-step guide on how to setup your site with the Prime master page please review the Site Master Page Setup section in the Post Install Configuration article.
To activate the Alerts widget feature on your site collection (this has most likely already been done) navigate to Site settings > Site collection features and choose to Activate the "Emgage | Prime Alerts Widget."
Clicking the Edit Alert gear icon allows select user to create/update an alert that will appear on all pages of the current Site Collection. Only users who are part of the "Prime Alerts Administrators" group will see the Edit Alert gear icon and be able to manage alerts.
If you do not see the Edit Alert gear icon, please add yourself to the "Prime Alerts Administrator Group" (or ask your Site Collection Administrator to do so) before proceeding.
- Click on the Eye Icon gear icon (located below the top navigation bar towards the right side of the page).
- You will be directed to the Alerts Configuration Page.
NOTE: To remove an alert, simply click on the Trash Icon.
- Click on the Create New Alert button to create an Alert or Click on the Pencil to edit an Alert. Click on the Trash Icon to delete a current Alert.
- Once you Click on Create New Alert, a box will appear. Here you will be able to select the specifications you would like for your Alert to display. Type your Alert in the Message text box, set the importance level, choose the audience to display the Alert to, and choose an expiration date.
