I need to get our school's daily announcements into a scrolling text box on my display.  Does anyone know of an easy way to do that? The announcements originate from our principal's secretary.  I would like it if she could email them to an address then have the Rise Display pick them up and scroll through the last couple days.  Is this possible?

Hi Eric,

We don't have any functionality to enable updates via email. Have you considered using an RSS feed to accomplish this?

I knew you were going to go there :)

I have but I know very little about them.  I don't know how to create one or get info to it.

Eric, 

RSS would definitely be the best way to go for this. You can browse documentation for our RSS functionality at http://www.risevision.com/help/developers/gadget-development/rss-gadget/ at the bottom there are many resources that should hel you get your own RSS feed set up!

Another option would be creating a text widget that the user can edit and update to suit your needs. It would be a little more complex for them to start out with, but it doesn't take long to get the hang of.

Thanks for your question!
