Spaces created for events have an Info Board feature, which allows you to post pinned messages in your Space, as well as make live announcements to everyone in the Space! Admins and Mods can manage the posts and announcements that appear on the Info Board. Guests in your Space can select Info Board in the toolbar to see all pinned messages and recent announcements. This article covers the following:
Note: The Info Board is a feature unique to Spaces designed for events. If you are in a remote work Space, you do not have this feature. You can still use the Pinned moderator message to leave a persistent message in your Space from Settings > Space > Space Preferences.
Add a Pinned Message
To add a new pinned message, select Info Board in the toolbar. In the Pinned Messages tab, select New post.
Note: You must be an Admin or Mod to add or manage pinned messages and announcements on the Info Board.
The Post message modal displays. Enter your text in the Message field and select Post.
Tip: You can apply basic markdown in the Message field to format your text.
You can apply many basic Markdown elements in the Message field. For example:
|Hard return (start new line)
|Hit Enter twice
|Hyphen + space
- Item 1
- Item 2
- Item 3
|Linked email address
To add, edit, or remove messages, select Info Board in the toolbar, then select Manage.
The Manage Pinned Messages modal displays. To edit or delete a message, hover to the right of the message text and select the Edit or Delete icon. If you have multiple messages, you can select the Reorder icon and drag up or down to reorder.
Admins can also create new pinned messages or edit existing pinned messages in the Information Board section of the Space dashboard.
Make an Announcement
To make an announcement that will immediately display to everyone in the Space, select Info Board in the toolbar. In the Announcements tab, select Make announcement.
The Post message modal displays. Enter your text in the Message field and select Post. (Remember, you can apply basic Markdown to style it.)
The announcement immediately displays above the Info Board icon in the toolbar. Everyone in the Space, no matter what Room they're in, sees the message (up to 24 hours after the message is posted).
Anyone in the Space can select the Info Board icon to view previous announcements. A red counter will display the number of announcements you've missed.
Warning: Announcements currently cannot be edited or deleted. Announcements display for 10 seconds when first made, and disappear from the Info Board after 24 hours.
