2. Configure the app with any text

Next, set up your app with the text you'd like to display as a scrolling ticker tape. Click "Configure" and you'll be prompted to a pop-up window to start customizing Noticeboard 2.0.

Please note, if you do not add enough text into the app, it will keep it static and not be able to scroll. If you'd like to learn step-by-step how to use our app, click here to view our Noticeboard 2.0 app guide.
