[This article is applicable to dashboard admins of companies using Teams and Enterprise subscriptions.]
From our 2021 release, the dashboard page when you login will display messages posted by admins. The announcement features provides a convenient method of keeping users updated on maintenance of the dashboard, knowledge base, tutorials and latest information on hardware and software changes that will impact their daily use.
Dashboard admins can see an authoring button (+) on the top right to open a markdown editor. “Markdown is a lightweight markup language that you can use to add formatting elements to plaintext text documents. Created by John Gruber in 2004, Markdown is now one of the world’s most popular markup languages” (https://www.markdownguide.org/getting-started/)
The authoring tab provides a very easy editor to add your text in markdown language, set some parameters, and publish the announcement to all users of the dashboard. You can also edit an existing announcement.
This cheat sheet link (https://www.markdownguide.org/cheat-sheet/) is a very useful reference for adding formatted text to your announcements including videos, images, emojis, etc.
Go ahead and give it a try ! We welcome your feedback. Please let us know how we can improve this feature.
Feel free to use or link some of our tutorial videos in your dashboard installations.
