Improvements To News & FAQs Module

Many of our clients use the “News & FAQs” module as a way to communicate with their franchisees. It’s such an obvious part of franchise software and a pretty simple module that it often gets overlooked. But following recent conversations with a few clients about how much value they get out of the module we have done some upgrades.

It’s basically an on-line notice board. You can self publish “news” ¬†articles about anything you like. Use it product news, awards you have given staff, openings of new stores, compliance reminders, training days etc.

Here’s a pic of the new look:

Some of the improvements now live include:

  • a better visual look and feel – it’s actually looks more like a noticeboard
  • ability to “Pin on Home Page” so you can make an article stand out as being the first thing a user sees on the home page in the top left of the page
  • ability to hide articles from franchisees – this is good if you just want to use it for Support staff news
  • making it easier embed SlideShare presentations in a new article

Check it out now and if any existing customers want us to push the news module live on your site – just drop an email to Hatchit Support.
