What is Banner Management?
Banner Management gives you more control over website customizations and allows you to preview and schedule your website banners in advance!
How do I find Banner Management?
From your dashboard, within the options in the menu to the left:

How can I use Banner Management?
Once you've clicked into "Banner Management", you'll notice 2 different sections:
- Current Banner: This is the banner currently displayed on your website. Click "Update Banners Now" to update your website banner within 24 hours.
- Seasonal Banner Management: Scroll to view all of your pre-scheduled banner options. When you have opted into seasonal banner updates (i.e., the checkbox has a check mark in it), your banners will be updated automatically on their scheduled "Start Date".
