Announcements are a great way to prominently feature news and information so that everyone can be kept up to date on what is happening in the company. You can promote all kinds of happenings: welcome a new team member; recognize a special event, or notify team members of important dates.
You can add an attachment to an announcement, providing more information to your team, or simply add a fun image or gif to draw attention to your announcement. There is an option to additionally broadcast the announcement via email to all users.
You can send an announcement to your team by going to Admin ⚙️ > Account Settings > Announcements. Click Add Announcement.
Here you can add the text and an image (we recommend copying and pasting the image into the text area for best results!).
You have the following options to save and post your Announcement:
- You can choose Save Only which will immediately post the Announcement to the wall and the Announcement widget. If you have opted to email all users a copy of the announcement, the email will be sent after 10 minutes.
- You can Save and Notify Users by selecting Yes upon saving the announcement. This will generate a notification icon on the top banner of your site. If you have opted to email all users a copy of the announcement, the email will be sent after 10 minutes, and the announcement will be immediately visible on the Home Wall and the Announcement Widget.
