Add announcements to your help center or portal

Adding portal or help center announcements are helpful if you want to inform all your customers at once about important news or ongoing problems

For example, you can let your customers know about a system-wide outage before they raise a request about it.

  1. From your service project sidebar, select Channels.

  2. Hover over Help center and select Open.

  4. Select Customize on the right.

  5. Select Manage portal announcements.
