This article applies to recent versions of SmarterTrack. View articles for SmarterTrack 12.x and earlier.

Some companies may want to display an announcement, such as a welcome message or other important info, to customers visiting their portal. This customized message appears under the Home header in the main area of the Portal's homepage and it can include completely stylized text, images and more to really make your message stand out to visitors.

Follow these steps to add a custom welcome message to the portal:

  1. Login to the SmarterTrack management interface as a System Administrator.
  2. Click the Settings icon.
  3. Under the Manage header, click Brands in the navigation pane.
  4. Select the desired brand and click the Edit button. (Alternatively you can double click on the Brand name.)
  5. Click the Custom Messages tab.
  6. In the Main Portal Announcement field, type your desired message. SmarterTrack offers a complete HMTL editor so you can completely stylize your message, and you can even include images and more.
  7. Be sure to click the Save button.
