About Company Messages

Company messages are seen by users when they log in. They are good for scheduled downtime, planned outings, and announcements.

  • Messages can be formatted using HTML tags, and are displayed for a specified period of time.
  • Users who are currently logged in will see the message the next time they log in.
  • If two messages are sent, users will see only the last one.


Tip: Post messages at least 36-hours ahead of time, to give all users a chance to see it.
