The News feature allows you to add news articles to Asset Bank which are displayed on the home page and optionally on specific browse category pages. To get to the News page, click on the 'Content' link in the Admin menu, then click on the 'News' tab.
If you don't have any news articles yet, click 'Add news item' to create your first one. This will take you to the Edit News Item page where you can fill out a title, date and the content of your article and select its visibility.
Check this box if you want your article to appear to users. If you choose not to publish your article it can be published later. This is an excellent way to proof you News articles before it's visible to your users.
Restrict by Folder?
Check this box if you want your article only to be visible to users with view permission on specific folders. Once checked a folder picker selector will appear allowing you to define the folders the article is visible. If checked a user who does not have view permission on one or more of the folders will not see the article anywhere while using Asset Bank. If left unchecked the article will be visible to all users
