The announcements feature in MoveSpring is a great way to stay connected with users and notify them of upcoming challenges, final scores, company wellness information or to send participant shout-outs! Admins can use this feature to notify participants through an in-app notification with the option to add a push notification on their mobile device's home screen.

For ideas of what to send via announcements, use our suggested templates below. Most of these announcements can be used with any challenge and can be personalized to fit your needs. Try to schedule at least one announcement a week to keep your participants informed and engaged throughout the challenge. Announcements will only show on the dashboard for 10 days, or until replaced with another announcement.

Note: any text in brackets needs to be updated with your own information.
