Allow corporate announcements to StaffHub members

Important: Effective December 31, 2019, Microsoft StaffHub will be retired. We're building StaffHub capabilities, including schedule and task management, into Microsoft Teams. To learn more, read Microsoft StaffHub to be retired.

This feature will be retired effective July 8, 2019 before the retirement of the overall Microsoft StaffHub product. 

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

  2. Turn on Enable Announcements.

    When you turn on Allow Corporate Announcements, StaffHub creates:

    • An Office 365 Group in Outlook called StaffHub Announcements.

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

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 add or remove users to an accepted senders list to enable them to send announcements.

  1. While on the Admin settings page, you can add ore remove users who are allowed to send announcements.

  2. The StaffHub Announcements group will automatically appear in their Outlook. Now users on the accepted senders list can send emails that will be surfaced in the StaffHub app. To learn how, see Send corporate announcements to all StaffHub members.

Manage your announcements

Announcements in the mailbox will be shown in the StaffHub announcements section and are treated as active. Only announcements that are sent after a user has joined StaffHub will be shown to them.
By deleting an announcement email in the group mailbox, the announcement will no longer appear in StaffHub.
