The Bulletin Board is like a staff notice board on the Home Screen, and all Chintaro users will see the same board when they log in. It can be completely customised by your organisation, used to relay important messages to staff, can include hyperlinks to useful websites, and can include hyperlinks to places on your network. The Bulletin Board is no longer limited to 255 characters, and can include much more information than before.
