The Holiday/Announcements web part provides a way to highlight institution holidays and special announcements in their own space on the portal. While these items can also be displayed on the calendar, using the Holiday/Announcements web part ensures they are always visible.
To configure the Holiday/Announcements web part, perform the following:
1.Add the web part to your portal page as outlined in “Customizing a Portal Page”
2.Click on the edit icon in the upper right corner of the web part.
3.If applicable, enter a keyword search. This keyword search will be applied to the results returned in the web part.
4.Choose a View option from the drop-down menu. You may choose to view Holidays only, Announcements only, or both.
5.Enter a title for the web part as it will appear on the portal page.
6.Select the Chrome State for the web part from the drop-down list. This option defines whether the web part is expanded or collapsed by default when visiting the portal page.
7.Select the Zone for the web part from the drop-down list. This option defines where the web part will appear on the page.
8.Optionally, specify the Zone Index for the web part. This option allows you to define the order of web parts within the zone. The default of “0” is the top position. Some browsers do not support drag-and-drop of web parts on the portal page and will require the use of the Zone Index to define their position.
9.Click OK to save your changes and return to the portal page view.
