Allow corporate announcements to StaffHub members

This is pre-release documentation for a public preview, and is subject to change in future releases.

You can allow certain people in your organization to send email announcements to everyone who is using the StaffHub mobile app. This makes it both easy and secure to reach all of your employees using StaffHub.

Enable email announcements to be surfaced on StaffHub mobile app

  1. Sign in to StaffHub at https://staffhub.office.com/admin.

  2. Turn on Enable Announcements.

    When you turn on Allow Corporate Announcements, StaffHub creates:

    • An Office 365 Group in Outlook called StaffHub Announcement Senders. You assign people to that group so they can send announcements to everyone who uses StaffHub.

      The person who creates the StaffHub Announcement Senders group is the sole owner. However, you can add more owners. Only owners can manage membership to the group.

    • A user account that will be used to relay your emails to StaffHub users. The account is called StaffHub Announcements Sender. Be sure not to delete it!

Manage who can send announcements

To do this step, you need an Office 365 license. A license gives you an Office 365 mailbox so you can assign people to the StaffHub Announcement Senders group in Outlook. Only people who are members of this group will be able to send announcements.

  1. While on the Admin settings page, choose O365 Group Management. It will open Outlook on the web and take you to the StaffHub Announcement Senders group.

    Add members to the StaffHub group in Outlook.

  2. Choose Add members to add the names of people who are allowed to send announcements to everyone on the StaffHub app.

  3. The StaffHub Announcement Senders group will automatically appear in their Outlook. Now they can send emails that will be surfaced in the StaffHub app. To learn how, see Send corporate announcements to all StaffHub members.

    Only members of the StaffHub Announcements group can send announcements.
