Company Internal News
Many companies do not have an internal news channel that works well both on web and mobile. Setting up one that’s easy to use and works on both mobile and web can be cumbersome.
With Composer, creating an internal news channel is fast and easy. We can also beef it up by adding automatic push notifications that go out to all employees when important announcements are made. As with all Composer apps, you can continue extending the app to build a truly powerful internal company app.
Example App Features
- Authorized users can post news items with rich text, links, pictures and more
- News are browsable by all employees via web and mobile apps
- Employees can add comments to individual news posts
- When a news item is flagged as an important announcement, a push notification goes out to all users
We start by setting up a rich form to create new postings. We then configure access rights: only users in the admin group can post, with everyone having read access.
We add the Comments feature to have separate comments for each news item.
Finally, we add an automation rule: if a post is created with the Important announcement” flag set, all users will receive a push notification.
