Announcements, or Community Updates, are a special type of conversation available for use by community employees.
Where are Announcements featured?
Announcements are featured throughout your community. The most recent announcement will appear in a banner at the top of your community. The announcement box color can be customized through your custom color settings. This box can also be dismissed by users. When that is done, the other sidebar content will move up to fill the space.
Older announcements can be found on the “Announcements” tab near the recent activity feed.
How do I make an announcement?
Announcements can be created from Manage Workspace.
Log in and click the purple “Create Conversation” button. Select “Community Update” from the conversation type drop down menu. By default, this drop down menu will select “Question”. Enter your content. Click “Post” when you are finished.
