HR can broadcast information to employees, or target news to specific employees using the rules engine. News can be posted on employee home page, and optionally delivered via email as well.
To create employee news, go to company 'Settings' tab, then select 'Homepage News and Email Alerts', and 'add a news article'.
Create your distribution list by using the drop down next to “To.” Select everyone for all active employee, or select from any other options to limit based on class, office, state or any of our nearly 20 available rules options.
The subject is the name that appears as the tile of the news article and in the subject of the email (if selected on post).
“Allow comments” turns on the ability to create a social experience on the news thread by allowing employees to comment on a news thread, and see comments made by other employees.
After news is created, select save. Now choose post options. Post to employee home page, or Post and Email. Employee cannot see news until it has been posted.
Employees will find the news article on their home page in the News and Notes section.
Note: This feature requires the Elite license.
Why are my new hires not seeing the news alert on their home page?
Home Page News alerts will only be visible to employees who were in the system at the time the news alert was posted. Employees added after that date will not see these alerts. We would recommend using Home Page Articles to add text to be visible to all employees no matter when they were entered in the system.
