Company feed: Announcements

Overview

When making a company announcement, the way you deliver the message to your employees is just as important as the medium used. It's important that you are reaching your employees and even a great opportunity to generate some buzz.  The Announcements feature provides you with two key communication methods; they are:

  • Company announcements: Allows you to publish information to your all your employees, which they can then access from the website and/or their mobile device.
  • Team announcements: Allows you to publish information to a specific team within your organisation, which they can then access from the website and/or their mobile device.

  3. In the text box type in the desired announcement.

    Helpful Tip:

    Typing @ into the text field, followed by an employee's name, will tag that employee in the announcement. Announcements do not have a limit on the number of employee tags, so there is no limit to how many employees it can include.
