    Hi Barry,

    is there any options for remove announcements?

    Thank you

    • Nope, it can be done from the database only.

  • This seems like it'd be really great but I can't seem to make it work

    My feed looks like a template and I can't seem to be able to change it in any way.

    • You can change the feed in config_template.xml zmzimletctl getConfigTemplate /opt/zimbra/zimlets-deployed/tk_barrydegraaff_announcements > /tmp/config_template.xml.tmp Then you can: nano /tmp/config_template.xml.tmp And then: zmzimletctl configure /tmp/config_template.xml.tmp
