- Clicking on the Plus button from any screen in the Announcement Editor Dashboard will open the New Announcement modal. Announcements can include a variety of elements including movies, tables, images, and even external links via a URL. Allowing you to provide whatever information you want your users to engage with.
- When you are finished drafting your announcement, select Post in the bottom right-hand corner. Once selected the announcement will then be pushed to any users that see the previously selected channel.
