Broadcast announcements in Dynamics 365

Here is next blog on how to create and broadcast announcements to an entire Dynamics 365 CE organization.

Circulate information quickly to a wide set of users at one go by using Announcements in model-driven apps in Dynamics 365, such as Dynamics 365 Sales and Customer Service. Announcements can also serve as message boards, where you can post topics of your interest that you wish to share.

These settings can be found in the Power Platform admin center by going to Environments > [select an environment] > Settings > Data management > Announcements.

Make sure you have the System Administrator or System Customizer security role or equivalent permissions to update the setting.

Create an announcement

  1. Select an environment and go to Settings > Data management > Announcements.
Note You cannot edit/extend this date after expiry. Model-driven apps in Dynamics 365 deletes the announcement after the expiration date.

Once you are done, choose Save or Save and Close to begin the broadcast.

Broadcast an announcement

Make the announcements available to other users in your organization by using web resources and dashboards.

Create a web resource

  1. In a text editor, type the following code, and save the file as “announcementsondashboard.htm”.
