Keep your staff engaged and feeling like part of the "bigger picture" by posting company news, network issues, awards, achievements, inspiration posts, staff spotlights, and more.
 
  1. Click Admin -> Communications -> News Content, or simply click the ellipses (three dot menu) on the Company News dashboard widget
  2. This is where your list of news posts will display. Click Create New Article on the right corner.
  3. Fill in your title.
  4. Select a Publish Date for a future post, or leave as-is to publish immediately.
  5. Set the Primary Image. This displays on the dashboard where the articles are listed.
    Suggested image size is 1150 x 470px, however the images are dynamic and responsive to screen size, so this is an approximation only.
  6. Enter your content - make it engaging by adding text formatting, colours, images, links or videos.
  7. Add attachments (if any - PDF's, charts, audio files, etc).
  8. Select whether you would like the article to be 'featured'. This puts an image in a banner on the dashboard with the title and link to the article. This banner will scroll through the images if there is more than one article featured.
  9. If Featured, set the featured banner image. This can be the same as your primary image, or different if you choose.
    Suggested image size is 1150 x 470px, however the images are dynamic and responsive to screen size, so this is an approximation only.
  10. Tick the 'Pin Banner' box if you want the image to display at the start of the banner carousel. Otherwise, the banner will scroll in chronological order (after any other pinned banners).
  11. Lastly set the permissions. Choose who can see the article (accessible), and who it is considered mandatory reading for. By default, every role in your company can see the article.
    - If the article is mandatory, each user with that role will receive an in-platform task and an email notification to alert them of the new article, plus a push notification on their mobile if they have the app. They will be required to confirm they have read the article.
    - If not mandatory, users will just receive a normal in-platform notification with no email, and will not be required to confirm they have read it.
  12. Hit Publish and head to your dashboard to see the new article in action. 


To remove the article from the featured banner carousel: 

  1. Under the news content page, select your article and click "edit". 
  2. Untick the 'featured article' box and hit submit.
