This article assumes you are logged into the community using an account with super moderator privileges. If your account is a forum-level moderator, the Administrator of the community may choose to restrict certain functions so not all options may be available.
Moderators can post announcements in the community using the Manage Announcements link at the very top of the page. Announcements show at the very top of selected forums chosen for as long as the moderator chooses.
From within the Manage Announcements page, you can manage the existing announcements, or click "Add Announcement" to add a new. When posting an announcement, you can choose which forums it is shown in and, if needed, the start and end date for the announcement which is useful for time-sensitive events.
Once the Announcement is saved, and if within the time window for which it was set, it will appear at the beginning of the Topic list in the chosen Forums.
