Set up spaces for mandatory news

Tailor your news to your users' needs - individually. Based on profile fields you can select which news to show. This is done via news sections that allow a very fine grained configuration. This feature shows its full strength in combination with our Customer User Profile plugin that allows you to define any number of completely customizable profile fields.
