Mark as Important

Mark as Important

When you need to share important news with your company, it can be a challenge to get information to the people that need to know quickly. Ensuring that people see that information is even tougher.

Workplace is changing how organisations communicate and now we're making it easier to identify the news that matters most. All premium companies now have the ability to mark posts as important.

Mark as Important allows organisations to ensure that their most important news is top of News Feed and top of mind for their employees. Marking a post as important ensures you'll never miss important company updates.

Improvements to reporting content on Workplace

Improvements to reporting content on Workplace

Reporting content is an important way for Workplace communities to moderate together and build a safe and engaging place to work.

So we've added new features to make this process better. People can now report comments as well as Workplace posts. We've also made updates to the reasons for reporting a post – so you can now provide your own reason if you prefer. This will help Workplace admins make a more informed decision on how to respond.

How does it work?

To report a post or comment on Workplace, go to the "..." menu and select Report post or Report this comment. If you select "I don't think this should be on Workplace", you'll have the option to hide all posts from that person, report the post or comment to the Workplace admin team.

Reporting content

Now, when you decide to report to your admin, you'll be able to choose from a list of options or provide your own customised reason.

Where can I find out more?

We are here to help. Take a look at our Help Centre or contact your Workplace team.
