Announcements are a very simple way to display and, optionally, email notifications to users.
From the Announcements menu item you can view and manage the announcements that are displayed on users dashboards. An announcement can be configured with an optional start and end date. An optional priority level is also available, which sorts the order of announcements when there are multiple.
Announcements can be restricted to users in certain groups by setting a list of groups for the announcement. You can also restrict announcements only to users who have permission to specific resources, allowing you to target information to subsets of users.
Announcement text supports Markdown, allowing you to provide rich formatting, links, images, and more.
