Only Workspace Owners or Administrators can make workspace announcements, and workspace announcements can only be seen by other members of your workspace.

The quickest way to make a workspace announcement is using the 'Actions' button. Click on the 'Create a post' option on the drop down menu, then select the workspace you want to add your announcement to. You will then have the option to select the 'Announcement' tab.

Creating a workspace announcement

You will find the 'Announcement' feature at the top of your workspace activity feed.

To make an announcement select the ‘Announcement’ tab and click into the text box called ‘Title’, add your announcement’s title.

The text box below the title is for the announcement's content. You can attach files to your announcement by clicking on the paperclip icon. Click the ‘Advanced Editor’ if you would like to format your announcement's content.

Now select the users that you would like the announcement to be sent to. The default setting is to ‘All Members’ but this can be removed and individuals or teams selected instead. If you don’t add any users to your announcement, no-one will be notified of it but it will still appear in the activity feed.

Finally click ‘Post’ and your announcement notification will be sent.

When a user next visits your workspace, or clicks on an announcement notification, your announcement will be prominently displayed in a panel that covers their whole screen. The only way to proceed past an announcement is to close it. If a user has multiple announcements they are given the option to ‘Read later’. If they chose to read later, the announcement will display the next time they visit that workspace.

Users also have the option to ‘Like’, ‘Follow’ or ‘Comment’ on announcements. Any social activity around an announcement will be shared in the relevant activity feed.

Which users have been notified?

if you notify other users of an announcement Glasscubes records the users that you sent the notification to, when it was sent and whether it has been viewed by them. More
