I am building a home page for SAS EBI tools for our organization, using Information Delivery Portal (4.3). My requirement is to add an announcement module in the portal where all updates/ modifications/ additions recently done or scheduled will be broadcast. Currently, we send out a broadcast email to all SAS users in case of such an event. I have not found any way so far to include such a module. Is there any portlet available which can be incorporated into the portal page? Any alternative suggestions are welcome.

I also wanted to add an announcements page on our SAS Portal V4.3. There might be a better way to do it, but here's what I did to create a crude hardcoded HTML page...
By editing the HTML file, you can instantly update portal news and annoucements. I have Prod and Dev portals pointing to the same HTML file. I also created a "Known Issues" portet under the NEWS page to list the status of existing problems.
Of course, the URL Display portlet could point to any web page that displayed the information you want to show as portal annoucements.
