The MOTD (Message Of The Day) can be blank or populated and provides a method for the policy maker to communicate important messages to their ClearCase users. Any text placed in the field is displayed as a tail on many question or advise dialog boxes. The message is displayed for both ClearCase non-web users and web users. For example:
;Final build for 3.8 tonight… Please check in all code.;;
Would cause the MOTD to appear on many dialogs that your ClearCase users would see during their use of ClearCase.
To restrict the conditions where the MOTD is displayed, populate the MOTD Restriction List.
