How to use the Notice Board Calendar
Hi5's Notice Board Calendar
The Notice Board is an excellent tool for quick and effective workplace communication. Never miss a company announcement or event again! Anyone in the company can create and send a Notice to specific Departments, Roles, Offices or Permissions within the company.
Important: If you're an Admin, you can go to My Company > Settings to toggle whether to allow Employees & Line Managers to create Notices.
Go to the Notice Board tab in your Hi5 Menu.
You'll reach your Notice Board Calendar 👇
Create a Notice
To start a new notice, click on the Add New Notice button on the right.
A new notice will pop up. You will then be able to edit the subject and content of the notice.
Customise your notice by adding hyperlinks, changing font size, font colour, adding bullet points and more.
Once you have done this, click the Next button.
On the right you will be able to filter your audience.
By selecting the first box, a notice is sent to All in Company.
To send to specific groups in the company, filter by Names, Departments or Offices.
Decide whether your recipients will be notified by email, microsoft teams, or both. You can also deselect both if you don't want any notifications sent out.
Step 4: Schedule Notice
You can now choose to schedule your notice for a future date. Once you are done click the Save as scheduled button.
If you decide not to schedule your notice, you can save the Notice as a Draft, or click Send Notice to send it out.
Pro tip: Make sure you've selected the group of co-workers you want to send this Notice to before saving it as a Draft, as you won't be able to edit this after!
Step 5: Completing and sending a draft Notice
If you saved the Notice, it will be labelled as 'DRAFT' in green. Simply click on the edit icon to make changes to the subject and content, or click on the trashcan icon to delete the draft.
Once you're done, click Send Notice.
Step 6: Commenting, Clapping & Pinning Notices
To view and leave a comment on your notice click on the date and then notice:
Type out your comment and click enter on your keyboard.
Once your comment has been saved, you can go back and edit, or remove it as needed.
Step 7: Create Events
To add a company event, click on the Add New Event button on the right.
Fill out the Title and Details of your new event. Once done click Next.
Decide whether your recipients will be notified by email, microsoft teams, or both. You can also deselect both if you don't want any notifications sent out. Then select your event date, and click Create Event.
