How are important messages shared within your company? Many businesses today still rely on company email to blast important-and often urgent- messages. Although email is often the only way that many executives and administrators have to reach their entire organization, there are many flaws in the mass email, reply-all culture. Many urgent messages can get lost in the crowded inboxes of employees, and reply-all messages often interrupt the productivity of an entire organization.
One of Lua's most powerful and productive features is Broadcasts. Users with Broadcast privileges (usually given to administrators, executives, or managers) can send one-way messages to the entire organization, an ideal channel for announcements, alerts, and the occasional motivational message.
Who can send a Broadcast to the organization?
Any user Admin or non-Admin, that has been granted Broadcast privileges can send a broadcast. Response on a broadcast, or follow-ups to the whole organization, can only be done exclusively by other users with Broadcast privileges.
Do Admins automatically have Broadcast privileges?
No, users with Admin status might not have Broadcast privileges. Broadcast privileges have to be granted to each user. This permission can be completed within the Admin Console.
What do users without Broadcast privileges see?
All users within the organization receive one-way Broadcasts that have been sent by users with Broadcast privileges. If the user does not have the ability to send Broadcasts, he/she will be able to read messages within the Broadcast channel without being able to respond to it through the channel. He/she will not see the text composition field at the bottom of the channel.
Do Admins that previously had Broadcast privileges lose those privileges?
No. Users that have historically been able to send Broadcasts will still be able to send Broadcasts.
