Log-In Announcements and Planned Downtime Messages

Before planned portal downtime, Cerner Support pushes a notification to your system that is displayed in your portal log-in announcements. If you see a downtime message in a portal announcement body setting, do not edit, delete, or insert text before it. You can edit the text that is after the downtime message. Support removes the downtime message when it no longer applies. 

Note: The maximum character limit (including spaces) that can be displayed in the portal announcement body on the log-in page is 1855.
