Tracking news pertaining to all crucial events and activities within an organization may sound to be a quite tedious task. Sending e-mails to all your team members for making that announcement may be a valid option; however, the same may prove to be quite distracting at times.

However, with SharePoint, you can always make announcements extremely simple. SharePoint allows you make announcements straight, clear and loud enough via the Announcements List App.


So, What All Announcements App Allows you Do?

  • You can drive your team members to your site to get the latest information about key events and other activities that are going to happen within your organization
  • You can alert team members about milestones related to the business activities they have been involved in.
