We always prefer to send email to all of our users at once, if something needed to notify all users for any change. So this is one of the main feature missing in V1 and also the "Announcement Banner" for any updates.

Comments

  • I would add - the ability to send emails to groups of users (ie As a system administrator, I would like to be able to send an email to all the members of the Project Administrators in order to alert them of a new addition to a list type). The groups could be by project, team, privileges, etc.

  • An announcement banner would be great for being able to quickly identify whether you are on the production or sandbox instance of your group's VersionOne.

  • Yes, we need this feature to notify/update all users regarding any custom change/addition that we make on project/s, fields, etc.

  • both email and banner would be great. it seems the banner would be fairly easy to add as a long text box to the top margin in the main application and would serve our immediate need. Seems creating banner messages would be limited to System Admins. It would be nice for the banner to display until the user clicked it off or cleared it in some way. It could then become active again when a System Admin entered a new message.

    the email solution could certainly come later

  • This banner would be great to inform users of Version 1 of upgrades, defects, etc. Seems like we send an email out to people and they come back and ask questions about an upgrade, etc. If this banner can display until the user clicks it off or clears it would be great. This way we know the user has read the message.

  • I agree with everything already mention. Emails are a great form of communication, but our inboxes become cluttered and some communications are missed or overlooked. Having an announcement banner in VersionOne brings the announcement directly in front of the user. I like the other suggestions of having the user click the banner off once they have seen it.

  • Yes this is much needed improvement , we have an issue coming out of a point release and want to notify our user base with the work around for the same and updates , having an "Announcement Board" is going to save a lot of adhoc work

  • I would also like to endorse the need for a banner and for enabling emailing all active users functionality.

    This banner would be great to inform users of Version 1 of upgrades, defects, etc. Also like the idea of this banner being displayed until the user clicks it off. I would also like to see the ability to display this banner at any time - by that I mean, it should display for already logged in users and not only at log in.

    Adding a time feature would be also nice, so the message is displayed on a particular day/time.

  • I to second Alkla Mital's comment and would also like to endorse the need for a banner and for enabling emailing all active users functionality.

  • Being able to send e-mail to all users AND raise a banner would be extremely useful for announcing downtime or maintenance windows for on-prem installation.
