How to create an Announcement
An Announcement can be set up by a HR or Admin user by going to Admin > HR > Announcements > Add
Title*: The title of the announcement
Content*: The content of the announcement
Pinned: Tick to have the announcement pinned to the top of the Announcement display
Require Acknowledgement: This means all users will need to acknowledge the announcement. You can report on who has Acknowledged the announcement in Report builder. Read more about this here.
Category*: Select a category to add the announcement to. (New categories can be added whilst creating an announcement using the 'Add' button or by selecting the 'Categories' button at the bottom of the Announcement page).
Status*: Active will display the announcement, Inactive will not display the announcement
Link to company document: The document attached here will display as an attachment and will be downloaded when pressed.
Department / Site permissions: You can limit the announcement to only display for selected departments and/or sites.
Manager level: Tick if you want this announcement to only display to users with a Manager level job role.
Go live date: If this is left blank the announcement will 'go live' (display) immediately. If this date is set in the future you will not be able to use the 'send email' option.
Expiry Date: The expiry date is when this announcement will become inactive and no longer display. If set blank this will never expire and will need to be manually set inactive or deleted.
Send email: If ticked an email will be sent to those who have permission to view the announcement based on above permissions. It will also only be sent if the status is set to Active and the go live date, if set, is in the past.
