Stack Editor: Bulletin board

Stack owners can broadcast important announcements to all users of a particular stack with the bulletin board feature. When the stack owner sends a new message to the stack, every user receives a notification (see details of how this works in the LTB App here).

To open the bulletin board, click on ‘Messages’ in the stack view mode. The message view has three parts: (1) message list, (2) message editor, and (3) preview.

1. Message list

This is a history of all the messages that you have sent to the stack. To open a message in the editor, click on it. The little number to the left of the message subject is a counter for the number of users who have opened the message.

2. Message editor

Messages are edited in a simple rich text editor. You have the possibility to broadcast a message at a particular date (“Publish from”) and stipulate a date by which the message expires.

3. Preview

This is simply a preview of the message as it will appear to the user. There might be some formatting differences though depending on the device.
