To alert students and your broader campus community of updates to career center hours, classes, and other valuable announcements, add a yellow alert banner to the top of your platform! 

Alert banners are visible from any page in your platform, allowing relevant news to always remain front and center for your audience. The University of Washington added an alert banner to notify students that their Career and Internship Center moved virtually:

To add an alert banner, follow the steps below:

  1. Log into the backend of your uConnect platform, and select “Customize” from the left hand side menu

  2. Click on “Front Page Settings”

  3. Insert any text you’d like to appear in your banner to the “Alert/Announcement” text box

  4. Make sure to save your changes by selecting the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the page

To remove an alert banner, click on "Front Page Settings," remove all text from the "Alert/Announcement" section, and select "Save Changes" at the bottom of the page.

Please submit a support request with any questions on managing your alert banner.
