The noticeboard home is the first tab at the top of the noticeboard window. This is where all of the notices and snippets are located. Also, the noticeboard home is what the majority of users will see, including employees, parents and learners.
Documents and information included in the noticeboard will vary depending on the intended recipient. For example, Year 9 Options Evening Presentation would not be relevant to Years 7, 10 and 11, therefore you can select the appropriate group(s) for your notice.
