Hi there I want to provide a MOTD service as people login on the network, so that we can keep people informed of events and things they need to do within the surgery. Has anyone any experience of doing this? What did you use? As we're in the NHS primary care end, we have to fund this ourselves so it either has to be free or very little cost. Many thanks for any input.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

One way of doing this would be with an HTML page that is the default browser homepage enforced by a GPO. Put IE in the startup folder and after login, the MOTD would be displayed.

Other way of doing it would be with a logon script, which displays a message box. It is easy and free, but perhaps not appealing enough.

The logon script could bet set in Default Domain Policy -> User Configuration -> Policies -> Windows Settings -> Scripts -> Logon, and should be similar to this (vbs):

<pre>WScript.Echo “This is the message of the day”
WScript.Quit</pre>
