I've proposed something similar to this.The ability to send mass alerts to the board based on groups. This mod is worth $100 to me.
Related to that thread you linked to. I made some additional suggestions I think would add substance to this awesome suggested feature. (below)I've proposed something similar to this.
Before I read the first post this is exactly how I envisioned it to be described in the first post. Nice idea, good suggestion and a beneficial feature if you ask me I would like to see. Perhaps being an important announcement the colouring of the alert could be different from the standard red and maybe take priority asthe one that shows with a kind of weighting system being deployed so that this alert takes priority over other alerts.
If there's going to a sound alert I would like the option to turn the sound off in the adminCP, I hate going to sites that throw any sound at me that I haven't specifically clicked on to hear - worst than sites with flashing adverts all over the place.Any change to the red popup will alert frequent users. To get other users surprised, you might need a bit more of a change. To get everyone to click it ... it would have to flash and make a sound. Actually a sound might work.
I like this idea.I think the "Priority Alert" should appear at the top.
