What Are Company Announcements?
Problem: Inconsistent and Missed Messages
After all that work, your message is still likely to be lost in the shuffle, and you have no way of knowing whether or not it’s well-received, aside from tracking the occasional reply.
Solution: Distributing News Naturally
Leaders can even mark particularly important updates as “must-read,” requiring employees to acknowledge that they have read and understood the message. This feature takes away the headache and uncertainty inherent to more traditional distribution channels like email.
|May not reach all employees||Reaches every person, prominent in their news feed and accessible from all devices|
|Hard to make it look nice or include images||Easy to format, can use pre-built templates, and everything is engineered to look good in the platform|
|No way to embed video||Video can be embedded|
|No reactions except reply or reply-all||Emoji reactions allow quick feedback, and everyone can contribute to comments without the confusion and frustration of a multi-threaded reply-all email chain|
|Impossible to know if it’s been opened/read||Leaders can see view count and other insights, and even set posts to must-read, requiring an acknowledgement|
|No analysis or metrics||Sender can see insights on how the content performed, and boost to a larger audience if needed|
|Easily lost in crowded inbox||Much harder to miss in news feed|
How To Make Company Posts:
To create a new company post, you first must be a network administrator or have received permission from an administrator.
Once you have permission to post, select the ‘Compose’ button from the top of your dashboard and then the ‘Post’ button from the drop-down menu, under ‘Share.’
Next, choose the option to share your post with everyone, ensuring it becomes a wide-reaching company post.
Give your post a title and choose from over a dozen different template options, or start from scratch.
You can edit the post and add or remove content until it’s exactly what you need. Once your post is finished, just adjust the settings and select ‘Publish Post.'
