How to create an announcement

Adding an announcement to your data asset is a clear, eye-catching way to call attention to an important feature or to identify a change coming down the pipeline.

Because the announcement feature shows who wrote it and when, you can easily identify if the announcement is still relevant and who to ask if you have questions.

What types of announcements would you want to share across your team? Here are a few examples:

  • We are updating this data asset next Tuesday!
  • Our engineering team is currently working on the bug that is breaking this schema. We are aiming to fix it in the next 24 hours.
  • Be careful with this data asset. It is feeding into a high priority dashboard that our C Suite uses!
