On v6111. When we were on v6.0 we used the home page defaultdashboard.html file to broadcast messages to P4P users. Since Action Dashboard Solution pack has been installed, users prefer that to be on top since announcments are infrequent. We would like to know if there is any configuration that allows us to use dashboard as "news" items, that user gets it once then can go to Action Dashboard and that stays at the top/main tab on "Home". Would there be any other methodology to send "news updates & announcements" to users within PLM4P application other than the defaultdashboard.html page and/or just sending them email messages?
Yes, that is what we are finding as well. I wanted to check the forum before I go to the effort of putting in the ER to ask for a something that helps this. I like the idea that I can update the DefaultDashboard, set a button that users click when they have read any new announcements, then users return to ActionDashboard as default. Until first read, then they get DefaultDashboard as "home" .... once read ... they can return to "Normal". Most of the time I just hope that I'm missing the configuration setting to make it work the way I want.
We figured out the best solution for us was to rename the Home Tab to Announcements. This seems to help our users go look there to see if there is anything new. Otherwise, default is Action Dashboard. I now have a last updated (Data) on the DefaultDashboard file that I change when I edit the page.
