Before a message can be sent one must be created. Select “Toggle Broadcast Message Management.” The label and description are for the benefit of dashboard users and will not be displayed in the message. With the custom radio button selected you can put in either plane text or HTML. The Specific URL radio button can be selected for displaying external URLs. When the preview button is selected, you can view the page as the end users would see it. Be sure to allow pop-ups in order to view the page. Select “Save ts as a NEW message”
