Hey guys- I am wanting to create an announcement component within our Community. Ideally it would be something we could control messages to certain audiences. So, Partners would see partner specific content, etc. I also would like for this to be editable within Admin vs studio/SDK.
Any idea of how i would make this happen?
Making a few assumptions, but there are a couple of ways you could accomplish this.
Assuming first that "Partners, etc" are user roles.
If you have one announcement at a time and don't care to create an historical record of announcements:
If you could have multiple announcements for a given role and/or you want to keep an historical record of announcements:
Hopefully, this helps or gives you some better ideas!
@SarahD Thanks for this response! It would be helpful to know if this custom announcement component require updates to be made via studio/SDK or could this be updated in Admin via custom content?
We do it like this - We have a component called "custom.article-tiles-final" - We activate it inside a Custom Content component inside of Admin though, this allows us to modify it real-time without ever doing a studio push.
Within the component, we can specify which node, articles, or how the articles even display. We don't have it implemented yet, but we'll have a 'role' parameter eventually which would limit the component to only show for those with a specific role.
You'd have to build the entire component to do all the magic though of what to display using something like this.
<@component id="Custom.Article-Tiles-Final" showSubject="true" includeStyles="true" title="Learning Paths" description="Choose from our pre-determined learning paths to follow a step-by-step journey." showArticleTeaser="true" showUser="false" showText="true" start="true" characterLimit="165" showDate="false" displayAmount="5" coverPhoto="/html/assets/demo-image-4.jpg" showMoreButton="false" showLabels="false" grid="3" showViews="false" sortBy="manual_sort ASC" displayNodes="" end="true" displayArticles="1084404,1084402,1084406,1084405,1084410" showUpvotes="false" renderAmount="5" showComments="false" uniqueId="wo35522of4"/>
Additionally, if you would like to have a custom setting added to the Settings List Editor to configure your component from admin, you can make that request through Support.
Hey Stan would you be willing to jump on a call and go more in depth explaining this solution. I believe your solution is what we are looking for.
