Site Messages

Messages are able to be displayed to users visiting VETenrol, and these are created and managed in the VETenrol Admin using the Site Messages feature.


Messages will display for almost all VETenrol pages, including Custom Forms. However, the feature does not extend to:

The positioning of the messages is controlled by the branding for the account. Typical locations are to the right of the company logo, or beneath the page heading text.

Messages will be displayed by a user until that user closes the message. Users will continue to see messages that fall within the time period for viewing each time they visit unless they close the message(s).

Once a user has closed a message it generally will not show for that user again, however, exceptions may occur when a significant time has passed between visits.
