Regular notifications and announcements are essential to any company culture. Privacy policies, company updates or vacation plans: All this information can be perfectly communicated to your employees in Jira announcement banners. This way, everyone is always up-to-date.
Out-of-the-box Jira announcement banners, however, are not the be-all and end-all. Even small individual wishes for your Jira announcement are quickly a case for HTML or CSS. The built-in Jira solution doesn’t leave you much room for creative use cases.
But there is another way. In this article, we explain how you can get creative with company announcements and increase the visibility of your information – no one can still say he/she didn’t know!
Pictures are worth a thousand words.
You see, the Jira announcement banner is added right below the menu bar. This fixed location as well as the predefined size is the reason why an announcement is easily overlooked. Copies longer than one line have to be scrolled down. There is no way to simply copy logos, images or icons into the text for the announcement. Font size and color are also cases for HTML and CSS.
Static banner, not visually appealing
Only two visibility settings: private or public
No planning possibilities for the announcement
Lack of statistics on visibility/acceptance
Fine-tuning only with HTML or CSS
No template for policies or cookies
Let us introduce you to an app that enables you to do anything you imagine for Jira announcements: GDPR (DSGVO) and Security for Jira.
Yes, this is an app for data protection.
But not only.
In fact, the GDPR app can do much more than ensure data security in your Jira, for example, revolutionize permission monitoring – or just create creative announcements for a wide variety of company updates.
To do this, we navigate to the corresponding module: Policies, Agreements, Notifications & Announcements. And the magic for many different use cases can begin.
