What is the Announcements tool?

Announcements allows for the delivery of messages to an entire site, to groups, or to specific rosters within a site.

Announcements Features

Site administrators can:

  • Make an announcement available to an entire site or specific groups or rosters within their site.
  • Post an announcement immediately, or schedule it to display during specific dates.
  • Send an announcement via email to site participants. If the announcement is set to display on a specific date, the email will be sent when the announcement is displayed.

You can find announcements that are currently available to you in the Recent Announcements area of your Home site, as well as in the sites where they were originally posted.

To access this tool, select Announcements from the tool menu in your site.
