Announcements are a simple way to provide information to users in the form of a modal dialogue. Announcements are technical articles that are played out via an additional channel. An announcement is only displayed once for a user. If several post items are to be displayed as announcements, they are displayed one next to the other in the dialogue.

When is an announcement considered read?

AppNavi has an intelligent mechanism that registers when a user reads an announcement entry. If it is considered read, it is not displayed to the user again (exception is that a new version has been created). An announcement is considered read when a user has displayed the text of a post item for at least 1 second in the visible area of the announcement window.

Republishing Posts as Announcements

It is possible to make changes to existing announcements. When a post item is republished as an announcement, a new version is created. If the user has already viewed the original announcement, the change will still be displayed again.
