How Do I Make a Global Announcement in an Account?

Administrators can post a message to all the users of an account using an account's Global Announcement feature. Global Announcements are used at the account level and are seen by all users within the account, unless you select a specific type of user(s). Remember, use these sparingly and these announcements are only used by the top-level account admins.

Global Announcements allows you to contact users within an account using one message. For example, if there will be a time period of updating or downtime for the account, you may want to let the users know ahead of time so they can plan accordingly.


  • Announcements is a global feature only and can't be used at the sub-account level.
  • Global announcements do not appear with course announcements.
  • The Theme Editorprimary color is associated with information, question, and calendar notifications. However, warning and error colors cannot be changed.
