To set a date range for your announcement click on "Start At" to set a time you want your announcement to show up on your website.


You can add an "End At" date and time to automatically remove the announcement from your website. The "end at" field is optional. If you would prefer your announcement to run indefinitely on your website do not add an end date.


*Bonus: Want to automatically announce your events weekly? Awesome! Check Weekly Recurring Announcement and select your day!

Pro tip - if your announcement is set to recur it will do so regardless of the optional "end date".

  • Select Announcement Display Type: Pop-Up

    Choose a content Style: Side By Side vs. Stacked

Stacked is when the photo displays on top of the announcement content
