In this article, you will learn:

  1. Go to Setup > HR > Announcements.

  2. Click Add.

  3. Enter the Publish Date.

  4. From the Employee Filter drop-down list, select the groups you want to receive the announcement.
    This list is fed from SETUP > Security > User Filters. For more information, see How to Create Custom Filters.

  5. Enter a Title.

  6. Enter the message in the large field at the bottom.
    Use the message editor to customize formatting and add links, images, file attachments, and more.
