Create an Announcement as an Admin

As an administrator, you can manage all of your associations' announcements from one central location. 
  1. Once logged in as an admin, click Announcements in the left-hand menu
  2. This screen will show all your announcements. Click the green button on the right called +New Announcement
  3. Next, you will want to select which associations should see this announcement. You can select one, a few, or all
  4. Enter in your Title
  5. Enter in the text you'd like in the Body of the announcement
  6. Set your Start Date. The system will automatically default to today's date, but you can change this for a future date to a scheduled announcement to display. You may also set an End Date if you would like the announcement to disappear after a certain time. An end date is optional
  7. Toggle on the switch for Published. This means that your announcement will display between the time period set above. Leave this switched off to use as a draft
  8. If you would like this announcement stuck to the top of all your announcements, toggle the switch on for Pinned
  9. Set the priority to normal, high, or urgent (Please note, this will change the icon associated with the announcement - it does not affect how the announcement functions)
  10. Select your Audience. You may toggle both resident and board on so your message displays for all, or only toggle board so only board members in the Board Area are able to see the announcement
  11. Scroll back to the top of the page and click Save

Portal Announcements will allow you to share links, contacts and other enhanced content with residents and board members by using HTML tags in the announcement body content. By adding a few tags, and then pinning the announcement, you can create a quick reference sheet that always appears on the resident dashboard.
