The news service

The NewsApp service handles the activities and items associated with news posts.

News posts for a project are visible on the projectʹs home page, and the applicationʹs main page lists news posts for all projects visible to the current user.

Starting with CollabNet TeamForge , project news is presented on the projectʹs home page via a "Project News" page component, which can optionally be deleted or added to other pages. Each instance of the Project News component is a view of the same set of project news posts.

Some examples of activities that are managed by the NewsApp service are:
