Configuring the Bulletin Board

The bulletin board contains bulletins which keep Analysts and Users up to date with events and news that may impact them.

One of the system administrator responsibilities is to configure the bulletin board and define bulletin priorities.

You can:

  • enable auditing of bulletins, which will track changes to bulletins, recording the date of the change, the name of the analyst who made it and the action undertaken

  • enable version control, which instructs the system to track and store versions of objects attached to bulletins when these versions are updated

  • define the priorities analysts can assign to bulletins when they create them.
