If you want your message to be heard, sometimes you have to stand out in order to make it stand out. There are several ways to communicate with a wide audience using the channel announcements, including using a headline and a picture.
Create an announcement
Under the box where you type your message in the channel, click on Format at the bottom of the box.
A small arrow appears at the top of the box that appears next to the button for New Conversation Announcement, so you have to click it in order to move to the next step.
There are a lot of options when it comes to creating headlines: you can change their color, you can add a background image, or you can type in a headline.
Firstly, you need to add the topic of your announcement within the Add a subhead section of the announcement, then, you need to type the body of your announcement in the Text box under, and finally, you need to click on the Send button for your announcement to be sent out to the public.
Note: You can only see announcement messages in channels, and not in groups or 1:1 chats.
Can you post an announcement to all channels in a team in teams?
Microsoft Teams is currently capable of communicating with up to 50 channels at once when posting a topic across multiple channels at once.
How do I forward an email to a channel in Microsoft Teams?
To share an email with a channel, click on the three dots at the top right corner of the channel page whenever you wish to share an email with the channel. To save the email address to your clipboard, you can click on the option to get email and select copy. This unique email address can be added as a recipient to your incoming emails or forwarded emails at any time, so that you can use it exactly the same way as any other email account in your account that you have.
How do you edit a Teams announcement?
Ensure that the message policy is enabled in the Teams Admin Center > Messaging policies under the Teams Admin Center. In order to assign the respective policy to the users who are responsible for editing the posted announcement, you will need to enable the option to edit the posted announcement before you can give them access to the policy.
