Announcements are an easy way to identify important updates happening on your team and wider company. They allow the sender of these updates to confirm that they are being received and read by their team.
This article breaks down the experience for recipients of announcements. If you have Author access to a Collection, you can also send announcements! Check out the steps to do so here.
How announcements are displayed in Guru
Web App Dashboard View: Upon logging in, individuals will see up to 3 unread announcements that have been sent in the last month, notated with an Unread label.
These announcements will be removed from the dashboard once the recipient has confirmed they read the Card.
Extension View: When an announcement has been assigned to a user or Group to view, all recipients will see a banner across the top of their extension alerting them of the number of announcements they have to read.
Card View: When an announcement has been sent, all recipients will see a banner across the top of the Card displaying who asked them to read it and the associated notes.
Notifications: Users will receive a notification per their preference when an announcement is sent.
These notifications will include the sender's information, commentary on the announcement, and the read time estimate for the announcement Card to help the reader prioritize their time.
Certify that you've read the Card
Once you've read the Card, confirm that you've done so by clicking I Read it. The person who sent you this alert will be able to track who has/has not yet read this announcement.
Respond to the announcement
In addition to certifying that you've read the Card, you can share your reaction with an emoji using the React button or commenting on the note.
Only those who received the announcement will be able to view the threaded responses to the announcement. If the announcement is deleted by the sender, those comments are permanently removed from the Card.
If you want your response to remain on the Card, leave a comment on the Card.
See who else has viewed that announcement
Announcement senders and all recipients will be able to view and export the analytics on a sent announcement, regardless of role.
Check this out by clicking on x% read it under the announcement note.
Review all announcements assigned to you
You can view all of the announcements under My Tasks > Announcements. Here, you’ll be able to view the sender of the announcement, the date it was sent, and any associated notes.
Click on the Card Title in the Inbox to view the Card.
Within the Card, select the I Read It button and the announcement will disappear from your Unread Inbox, it will, however, still be viewable in your Read Inbox.
If the # requests in the "From" column for the Card is greater than one, it indicates more than one request was sent for the same Card. The recipient will see a single I Read It button and clicking it will make the announcement disappear from the Announcements - Unread Inbox.
If you did not have access to the Guru Card at the time the announcement was sent, you will not receive a notification. However, for Collections that you have Author access to, you can also view all historical announcements sent under the All Sent Inbox.
