Group Notices

Group notice is a pop-up message which is delivered to all members of your group. Members will receive it even being offline: SL sends the notification by email.

The following Must be taken into consideration:

  • Title of a notice may have a length of 254 characters and can not contain non-Latin characters.
  • Text of notice can have up to 512 bytes (International characters can occupy 2 bytes or more)

To register an attachment it should be sent to the bot managing your group and have the copy+ trans permission to allow the bot to send it. You can also set the next owner no copy / mod permissions if you want the recipients to be not able to give it away

One-time and periodic notices

There are two types of the group notices at SmartBots:

  1. One-time notices
  2. Periodic notices

All notices can have the inventory item attached (landmark, notecard or any other SL item).

One-time notices

These are notices to be sent once (either immediately or on a certain time). To create them go to the "One-Time Notices" tab .

When you create a group notice you must choose one (or more) groups which will recieve this notice. Next you need to select the date and time of delivery and enter text.
