Create and Manage Announcements

Explains how to create, edit, and delete announcements.

Create multiple announcement pages and choose the levels where they are visible. Your announcement page can include reports, HTML files (.html), and text files (.txt). For example, you can create an HTML file with information about an upcoming company event or with a reminder to complete a process in Adaptive Insights. Then upload that file to one of your announcement pages. You can view your new or updated announcements after you log out and log back in to the application.

New to announcements? See Announcements Overview.

Create Announcements

  1. Navigate to Modeling > Model Management > Others > Announcement Pages.  A list of announcements appears.

  2. Select New Announcement Page

  3. Enter a name for the announcement page. This is the name users see on the Announcements menu.

  4. Specify which levels the announcement is visible on and select Done.

  5. Navigate through Shared Reports (on the left side) and locate a file to add to the announcement page. You can also search for files. You can display only one report or file at a time.
  6. Drag the file to the layout area.

  7. Select Save your changes. Next, select Done.

Edit or Delete Announcements

Navigate to Modeling > Model Management > Others > Announcement Pages. A list of announcements appears.

  • Use the links to edit, delete, or rename announcements. When you delete, only the announcement page is deleted, the file or report you used to create the announcement is still available in Shared Reports. 
  • Use the Move buttons to reorder the list of pages in the Announcements menu. 

Rules for Using Images

If you use images in your announcements, host them at a location accessible from your web browser. For example, you can host the images on internal web servers or a shared drive that is accessible by your users.
