How to use Announcements

Triggering Announcements

  1. Click Send Now to send the announcement out to the selected Rooms/Locations. The location of the announcement banner differs based on the current usage of the room:

    • Splash - Banner at the Top of the screen

    • Share Screen, Play Content & Digital Signage - Banner at the Bottom of the screen

    • Emergencies - Announcements are not displayed

Ending Announcements

Announcements can be ended before the set duration both through the Vivi App and Vivi Central.

Vivi App

While an announcement is in progress the user who initiated the message will see a green banner displayed at the top of the Announcements tab.



Note: Only the most recent announcement can be ended via the Vivi app button. Any previous announcements will need to be ended via Vivi Central as shown below.

Vivi Central

Announcements can also be cancelled by IT admins through Vivi Central under the Announcements > Messages menu. This menu will display a list of all In progress and Completed announcements.

Announcements can be ended manually by clicking the red End button.


Creating Announcement Groups

Announcement Groups can be used to grant Presenters announcement access to specified groups of Vivi rooms.
