Community Announcements
The Announcements section is a convenient place where Coordinators can post community messages intended for the entire community. You'll find the Announcements button on the left-hand side of your community Home page (and most other community pages as well). The number of new announcements posted since you last viewed the Announcements page will be shown on this button.

When Coordinators create new announcements, they may also choose to send an email copy of the announcement to all Members in the community. (To send email messages to selected Members only, Coordinators can use the Email facility found in the Administration tab.)

A yellow flashbolt next to an announcement indicates that you are viewing that announcement for the first time. While only Coordinators may post announcements, other Community Sections, such as the Message Board or other sections created by Coordinators, allow all Members to post messages and reply to others' messages.

Tip for Coordinators: If you edit an announcement that was already posted, the edited message won't be counted as a new announcement for those members who have already viewed it. If you want the the 'new-Announcement' count to go up for everyone, delete the existing message and create a new one with your changes. (Coordinators can delete and edit announcements by clicking on the Sections, Announcements, Emails link on the Administration tab, and then expanding the Announcements section.)
