Announcements, Discussions, Messages

With announcements and discussions, you can share important updates or instructions with other people in your organization, as well as talk about how something should be translated.

What's the difference between the two? Announcements work on a project level, whereas discussions happen on a team level. By default, everyone involved in a project will get notified of any project announcements. Likewise, team members will be notified of any team discussions.

To send an announcement:

  • Select a project from the project navigation in the Dashboard.

  • Click Announcements.

  • Click the Add announcement button in the header.project-announcements.png#asset:430
