HR mobile app company feed: Announcements

Overview

As an admin or owner, there would be times where you need to post company news, team updates, share information, etc. to employees within your organisation. In these scenarios, sending an announcement out to employees is a good way to convey this information out in a timely way.

The Announcements feature on the mobile company feed allows you to do just this, post a public message to either a team or the whole organisation informing them of the latest news. You can also use this feature to comment on an announcement made by yourself or another admin, and if you made the comment edit or delete this information if needed.
