Moving from a bulletin to a data-only release

Let users know about changes to a bulletin

If a bulletin is moving to a data-only release, use a notice to let users know that a bulletin will no longer be published as part of the release.

A notice can be used to direct users to the latest available data on the topic. It should be short and clear and sits at the top of the page in a blue banner. Use the following notice templates when writing a notice for your bulletin.
