News Items appear on the group homepage above Events (if present). The last 10 most recent News Items will display in the homepage carousel, followed by a 'See all news' link which brings users to the list of all News Items. They are automatically included on the site-wide News & Events page, but they differ from Events in a two important ways:

  1. News Items are automatically dated when they are published (see Scheduling Content)
  2. News Item excerpts appear on the group home page

Generally speaking, News Items refer to the past and Events are in the future.
