This screen lets you write and send private messages to others with the correct User Group permissions.

How to Access

  • Select Components  Messaging  New Private Message from the dropdown menu of the Administrator Panel.



Form Fields

  • Recipient. The recipient of the message. Click on the "Select User" button to open the pop-up, and then, from the list of names, select the user to whom you wish to send the message.
  • Subject. The subject of the message. Just like the subject of an email, it helps if this is a short description of the message body.

At the top left you will see the toolbar.


The functions are:

  • Send: Sends the message. Note that the Recipient, Subject and Message fields cannot be blank.
  • Cancel. Closes the current screen and returns to the previous screen without saving any modifications you may have made.
