News

The go-to place for what’s happening in your organization. It’s easy to create articles, polls, photo albums, job postings, and more. There’s no coding or HTML required. NEWS items can be targeted at specific audiences, such as a location or division.

Custom article types

You can define up to ten custom NEWS item types, such as “CEO blog” or “New employee”. Each gets its own label that users use to filter.

Polls

Use image or text-based polls to get feedback from employees or teams.

Reporters

Designate people from around your organization to share stories of your culture and values in action.

Control publishing rights

You can create groups of people, each with specific rights to publish to NEWS. For example, you could set up a group who could only publish to your London location.

Targeted content

Use our List Selector to target content to locations, teams, divisions, or combinations such as “Manufacturing in China”.
