To create a new announcement, click the pencil icon (or anywhere in the "Write an announcement" bar). Enter a Subject and write your announcement, then click Post.

You can edit an announcement that you wrote by clicking the pencil icon.
Simply make your modifications and click Save.

Replying to an Announcement

You can reply to an announcement by clicking into the "Write a reply..." text field and entering your reply.

Tagging Someone in an Announcement

When you create an announcement or a reply, you can also tag someone with an @mention by typing an @ sign, then selecting a team member from the list. That team member will get an email notification of your post.

After you create a new announcement, the announcement will be sent to the team via email, and will be available to all team members in the Project Overview page.

In-app Notifications

An in-app notification of new announcements will also be available if you click on the bell icon in the top/right corner of the screen in the dashboard.
