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

Step 1

To start a new notice, click on the Add Notice button on the right.

Step 2

A new notice will pop up. You will then be able to edit the subject and content of the notice:

On the right you will be able to filter your audience.

By default, a notice is sent to All in Company.
To send to specific groups in the company, filter by Roles, Departments or Offices.
Choose which permissions will be able to see this notice (Admins, Line Managers and/or Employees).
Decide whether your recipients will be notified by email, push notification on mobile, or both. You can also deselect both if you don't want any notifications sent out.
Customise your notice by adding hyperlinks, changing font size, font colour, adding bullet points and more.

Step 3

Once you've typed out your message and selected your audience, 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 4: 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 5: Schedule a Notice

You can also schedule your notice to go out on a future date. Simply click on the Schedule Notice switch and select the publishing date before clicking the Save as Scheduled button.

Step 6: Commenting, Clapping & Pinning Notices

You can clap for notices to show your support. To leave a comment, View the Notice or click on the speech bubble icon on the bottom right corner of the notice, then start typing out your comment. Press Enter to send.

Once your comment has been saved, you can go back and edit, or remove it as needed.

If you want to highlight a particular notice, you can pin it. Pinning your notice will make sure that it remains at the top of your Notice Board page. 

Your pinned notice will now remain at the top of the Notice Board page until you decide to unpin it.

Note: Only one notice can be pinned at a time. The most recently pinned notice will be moved to the top of the page.

Step 7: Create Events

To add a company event, click on the Add Event button on the right.

Fill out the event details and save. Everyone in your company will be able to see the event on their calendar!
