Announcements can be an effective way to get people's attention.
You can post an announcement when you are the owner of a place (space, project, or
group). Announcements appear in the Inbox of users following the place and in a banner
on the home page of the place.
If available in the community, users may also get an email when a new
announcement is posted if they selected Email for
Inbox: Activity on their Preferences
page. For more about that, be sure to read Customizing Email Notifications. If you do not want Inbox and email
notifications sent when you create an announcement, be sure to uncheck the
Send Inbox notifications box (checked by default).
To create an announcement:
Go to the landing page where you want the announcement to appear. This can be
the landing page of a space, project, or group that you own.
Click the gear icon > Announcements.
Click Add a new announcement.
Enter the details of your announcement and specify the beginning and expiration
dates. Decide how long the announcement should be displayed by selecting a start
and end date.
Announcements start at 12:00 (AM) on the start date and expire
at 23:59 on the end date, in the announcement creator time zone.
If you do not want Jive Inbox and
email notifications sent when you create an announcement, clear the
Send Inbox notifications box.
To share, edit, expire, or delete an announcement:
Click Show Details on the announcement or navigate to the
home page of the space, project, or group where the announcement appears and
click gear icon > Announcements.
Note that when you expire an announcement, you are saving and hiding it, but not
deleting it. This is useful if you want to repost the announcement at a later
