This article runs through how to enable Announcements if it is currently disabled, and how to configure its settings once enabled.

📎NOTE To set up Announcements you will require admin-level access to Announcements functionality OR admin-level access to Sage HR account

Skip to:

General settings

  1. Click your name in the top right, then click Settings.

  2. On the settings menu click Announcements, then click General.

Enable Announcements

The Show Announcements checkbox controls whether the Announcements feed is visible in the main menu for all employees with any level of access. Published Announcements are saved even if the feed is disabled and will be there when enabled again.

📌TIP: If Announcements feature is enabled, you can limit it to Administrators. This is handy if you'd like to create a bit of content prior opening the access to wide audience of employees.

Announcements administrators

This field allows you to select users who you want to have access to the Announcements settings, to draft announcements, and be able to add new posts and edit existing ones. Administrators can also delete comments under the published Announcements.


Reactions allow selecting up to five emojis that can be used to react to each published Announcement.


If you select Send weekly/bi-weekly/monthly newsletter email to employees, this sends an email containing all the latest announcements to be sent to all eligible employees.

  • If weekly, it is sent every Tuesday at 10am

  • If bi-weekly it is sent every other Tuesday at 10am

  • If monthly it is sent on the first day of the month at 10am.
