How do I delete a banner system message?

Banner alerts, similar to notification banners in mobile operating systems, appear at the top of the user interface and are designed for delivering simple and concise information to users. These alerts can be pushed to all users or a targeted subset of users. Furthermore, banner alerts can be delivered on all servers of a Sakai instance or to only selected servers. There are three different types of banners in the PA System, color-coded by alert priority:

  • Blue (Low priority) - can be dismissed by the user
  • Yellow (Medium priority) - can be hidden (minimized) by the user
  • Red (High priority) - can be neither dismissed nor hidden by the user

Go to PA System.
