Thanks for reading.
Please can you tell me how to create an announce mechanism in Confluence?
The end result will be members receiving message.
Given you're a Confluence Admin go to the Admin console, click Custom HTML and paste the following code into the section called
At end of the HEAD:
<!-- Message Banner -->

This is also then a separate watch notification from any others that the individual users may have created so they can manage the email notifications with whatever email filtering rules they may have set up in their client mail applications.
