For example, the good old Message Broadcasting feature got some attention from the Open UI developers.
As we all know, the biggest difference between Open UI and the traditional UI in this area is that users now have a notification icon in the top application banner instead of the ticker-style message bar at the bottom.
Of course, this is not new in IP 2013. So let's focus on the new features:
- When at least one message has its Severity set to Urgent with Alert, the icon will blink. You can use the new .msgblinkstyle CSS rule in a custom style sheet to control the alternate appearance of the icon.
- A new Allow Dismiss flag has been added. When checked it will cause an icon to appear in the message abstract (see screenshot above), allowing the user to dismiss the message, so it no longer appears in the notification list.
- Administrators can set messages back to "Unread" status, so that the messages become active again for all users (see screenshot below).
- BIP Report users might have noted that completed reports are now available for download through the message broadcast area as well. Please stay tuned for a separate article on this topic.
With Siebel Open UI, the Message Broadcasting feature changed its appearance for the end user. IP 2013 adds some interesting new features.
