How to do it in Workplace

Create an official news groups

1. Create an official news groups

Create a company-wide news group for sharing regular snapshots of what is happening across your organisation. Make sure that you mark the group as Official so employees know that the group is the official channel for all company-wide updates. Pin a post to the top of the group page letting everyone know what the group will be used for.

Mark your company news group as Official

Make the group a default group so that you can reach everyone in one place with the latest news from across the business.

Learn how to make a group a default group in the Workplace Help Centre.

Control posting permissions

2. Control posting permissions

To ensure the quality of posts in this official channel, you can limit who can post directly in the group by setting the group to admin-only posts.

If you'd still like members of your organisation to post their own updates, you can turn on Post approval. Turning on Post approval means that all group posts must be approved by a group admin or content moderator before being posted in the group.

Learn more about the setting that group admins can apply in the Workplace Help Centre.
