Besides functional notices, which help your users to personalize their Linchpin experience, you can also create simple, text-based notices.
Prior to Linchpin Intranet Suite 3.4, Linchpin Pings was called Linchpin Assistant.
What are notices
Notices are great reminders. A notice can be displayed once or regularly (for example on a daily basis). When a user visits the dashboard and a new notice is available, it will be displayed as a pop-up window.
Notices can remind users to subscribe to news or fill out their profiles!
