    Hi All,
    We have a IP Phone Service, where we use the IP Phone to make announcements. The announcements are frequent, like one new announcement per week. About a dozen announcements are displayed in a menu starting with the latest at the top.
    Each announcement is then linked to the text of the detailed message itself.
    In addition to making the announcements we want to implement the following.
    If a new announcement is made and the user accesses the service, user should know that there is new announcement.
    Some folks were asking if we could alert the user by some flashing message. Not sure how that works, if at all.
