What is a message box?

A message box is a small dialog box that shows a piece of information to the user. The message box configuration in Endpoint Central is useful in scenarios where an admin wants to display an error, warning or information to users. A simple use case of a message box is when you want to inform users about any activity scheduled that requires user intervention. By enabling the message box to inform users, an admin can elevate the transparency and productivity levels of employees. A small pop up box with the required content will appear on the screen for a particular time interval fixed by the admin during computer startup or for the subsequent refresh cycle.
