Introduction


The Notification After Login Feature is like a modern-day notice board that gets the point with the right users at the right time. This allows you to add custom text and a call to action for users just as they log in. You can also display an important notice about your programme to targeted users based on the number of hours they have achieved on your portal.


As a super administrator of your platform, you are able to display a direct message to your users as they log in. To see a high-level overview of the feature, look at the feature here.


Here are the reasons for this feature's existence: 

  • It is related to the Locking Out Users Feature (read more about that here) which fully blocks users out of the system.
  • Hours achieved is the main rule or condition upon which you can set the notification and block out rule. This ensures the hours attained on your portal are controlled and never abused.
  • If there is a programme update which you need users to read and understand, it can be placed here for the users to acknowledge the message before they proceed with any action on the portal.

Setting Up Notification After Login


Start by heading over to the Setup Panel by clicking [Settings] at the left-hand sidebar.

What the Users See


Let us say you set a condition to show a message to a profile with:

  • Hours volunteered by user this year
  • Is at least
  • 7 hours


If the user's profile matches the set conditions, the user will get a message like the one below after they successfully log in.
