Notices are quick, short pieces of content. They're a great way to share important updates or time-sensitive information at a glance. In this guide, we'll look at each step in the Notice creation process.
Notices are simple and direct—they don't have any images or interactive elements—so they're a good way to get information across quickly and cleanly. You can use them for emergency building alerts or maintenance issues, but you can also use them for quick messages about food, events, and notices around the workplace.
Most of the time, they'll display by default on the Home tab of your Channel. Since they're highly visible and flexible, it's a good idea to decide as a workplace or a team how and when you want to use them so your workplace members know what to expect.
Draft a Notice
Whenever you want to make a Notice, click the + New Content button and pick Notice.
Once you're ready, you can configure your message on the Draft step:
- Enter your Title (75 characters) and Description (255 characters). These will be the heading and the text content of your message.
- Use the dropdown if you want to add a signature with your contact—this is called a Message card. Choosing Notice card removes the signature.
- Configure your subtitle—date, none, or some custom text. If you choose date, you'll configure the end time in the next step.
- Pick your color. The text color will automatically switch from white to black for contrast.
And that's it—it only takes a few seconds to craft a quick message for your teams.
When you're ready, you can Save your Notice for later or click Next.
Once you've made your Notice, you'll choose when you want it to appear and who should see it.
In the Targeting step, use the calendar and the time pickers to set up when you want the Notice to publish on your channel.
|💡 In Activate, you can configure the event time to be different than the publication time—sometimes the event you're describing runs for a certain period, but you might want the message to be visible ahead of time to spread awareness, for example. These are the Goes live date and the start date.|
Use the Goes live at button to pick when you want to publish the Notice to your channel.
Use the calendar below to choose your start and end times for the Notice. The end time you pick will automatically unpublish the Notice. For Notices, you'll usually want the Goes live at time and Start time to be the same.
Next, select who you want to see the Notice. By default, the Notice will go to your whole channel, but you can unselect this option and send the Notice to a specific team, tenant, or other channel, if you're an admin of several. You can check how many people will see the message to make sure your content is going to the right audience.
When you're done, Save the Notice or click Next.
For Notices, just configure your notifications before you publish. Click the + icon to add a new notification.
The default time and date will be the start date you chose, but you can add and configure as many notifications as you like. Use the same text for repeat notifications, or make a series with different messages. See our guide to Notifications for more information.
Once everything's set, click the Save button. Your Notice is all ready, and the members on your Channel will see it as soon as it goes live.
