Tip: Using Appearance Schedules with Announcement Boxes

If there is a determined period of time during which you want an Announcement Box to appear on your website, consider using the CMS's appearance schedules to specify the timeframe. Defining an appearance schedule takes away the need for you to manually remove content from your webpages, and instead does it for you. Find out more about appearance schedules.
