Important Notes

  • You must enable the Alert Bar on the Category Level first before you can turn on the Alert Bar for an item.
  • If there are multiple published alerts with the Alert Bar enabled, the alert with the most recent Start Date will appear first and control the Alert Bar Text and Link.
    • If there are multiple published alerts with the same Start Date, the most recently modified will appear first.
