Share news and updates with other members of your digital workplace by creating a new microblog post from any tab in the app. Members who follow the microblog channels that you post to will receive a notification and see the post in their feed.
Considerations and caveats
- Who can do this: Digital workplace members can post to any microblog channels that they have at least write access to.
- @mentioning: When posting to a microblog you can @mention other members of your digital workplace. @mentioning a member results in them receiving a notification with a link to where they are @mentioned. To @mention a member, type @ and then begin typing the member's name. As you type, a menu will pop up from which you can select who you want to @mention.
- App Permissions: You must give the app permission to insert images into your post from your device's camera or storage.
- Attachments: You cannot add attachments to microblog posts made with the app. If you want to add an attachment, consider creating the post from the Web tab of the app.
