The previous GTM version allowed for a welcome message that remained constant in a GTM room. To set the message you used the daisy/wheel icon to access the relevant preferences settings.  I can no longer find out how to do that in the new version.

I love many things about GTM but the poor access to information for what should be basic functions is frustrating.

Any guidance is gratefully received.
