Updates are a great way to engage employees and interact with them. Compared to the chat, updates are a lot more visually engaging and also give actionable insights such as the ability to reach out to specific users or groups, notify those who did not view the update, and of course create recurring updates. The Recurring Update option will allow you to send out recurring updates to your employees. You can set updates to repeat daily, weekly, or monthly, making sure that they are always on top of the most important announcements.
