What are Announcements?

Announcements are a great way to promote updates on Glean's home page for your teammates to see, especially if many teammates are using Glean as their new tab page.

They can be targeted to a limited set of teammates for whatever duration you choose.


Create an Announcement

If you have permission to create Announcements for your team, navigate to Knowledge > Announcements and click the "New announcement" button in the upper right corner.

In the modal that appears, you can

  • Give your announcement a custom emoji and title

  • Target it toward certain departments

  • Write your announcement (markdown supported)

  • Adjust when it should appear and disappear from your teammates' home pages

Click on the announcement card in the preview on the right to view the full message. Teammates will be able to do the same on their Glean home page/new tab page.


How Announcements appear

If there are announcements visible to you, you'll see an Announcements section on the Glean home page (or new tab page). You can click on the announcement itself to read in more detail, or hide it if irrelevant.

Announcements are not currently searchable in Glean.
