GitHub Enterprise Cloud admins can now display critical announcements to members of their enterprise or specific organizations. GitHub Enterprise Server already has this capability.
With this enhancement, Enterprise Cloud admins can display a critical message on all pages of their enterprise or in specific organizations. For example, you could announce a release cutoff date or an upcoming permission change. Announcements are displayed at the tops of pages as shown here:
To publish an announcement, you must be an enterprise owner or organization owner. Open your enterprise or organization settings and select Announcement. Enter your announcement message, an optional expiration when the announcement should be automatically unpublished, and select whether to allow users to dismiss the announcement when they see it. Click Publish announcement to publish it.
For the best user experience, we recommend publishing only critical announcements and keeping the message brief to occupy less display space on each page. Link the message to a discussion for more context, guidance, and optional conversation. For non-critical messages or extended announcements, use a discussion instead.
For more details, see Customizing user messages for your enterprise in the GitHub Enterprise Cloud documentation.
