Sending users alerts in the application with system messages

System Messages allow you to send messages directly to application users. For example, you might want to inform them about upcoming system maintenance. This can be done when they log in or as a pop-up that is pushed to logged-in users at a specific time.

Configure System Messages:

1. In the Site Admin Menu, navigate to Applications / System Messages

Type Push - pushes a pop-up to logged-in users at the time specified in the “At Time” field.
At Login - shows a pop-up when users log in after the time specified in the “At Time” field.
Send date/time Time when the message will be shown (as per the explanation above based on message type).
