Jillian's Module Thoughts - News Flash

 

News Flash

I love the News Flash module.  It is a great way to frequently add new content to your site without committing you to a great deal of time.

You can literally type 1 sentence worth of news for each News Flash and that's all you need.  If you wish to add a link to more information, then you have the option of doing that as well.

Here are some ideas of what you can write about to update your News Flash on a regular basis:

  • Sales
  • Career Opportunities
  • "We've Moved" Details
  • New Products and Services
  • New Staff Annoucements
  • New Store Hours
  • Upcoming Events
  • Media Announcements
  • Customer Testimonials
My favourite thing about this module:

I really like that the user has the ability to control when the News Flash is Activated and then when it is removed (Hidden) from the site.  This is an awesome feature as it removes the extra step and responsibility of having to remember to remove an outdated News Flash.

For example, if your company has modified hours during the holidays, you can set it to have the News Flash show up on your site on December 1 and then be removed on January 5.  You don't have to go back in to remove the News Flash when it is no longer relavent.  Awesome!

Some customers that use this module: Reds Garden Centre, Tech Town Dentistry, The Charcoal Group
Industries that are well suited for this module: This module is completely versitile.  There isn't an industry that couldn't use this module.
Associated module group: Essential Suite
