Mark as Important
When you need to share important news with your company, it can be a challenge to get information to the people that need to know quickly. Ensuring that people see that information is even tougher.
Workplace is changing how organizations communicate and now we're making it easier to identify the news that matters most. All premium companies now have the ability to mark posts as important.
Mark as Important allows organizations to ensure their most important news is top of News Feed and top of mind for their employees. Marking a post as important ensures you'll never miss important company updates.

Want to understand how well you've landed your message? You can track the impact of your important posts with powerful dashboards that measure reach, comments, and reactions.
Our blog post walks you through the details. Or get answers to your product questions in our Help Center.
Improvements to Reporting Content on Workplace
Reporting content is an important way for Workplace communities to moderate together and build a safe and engaging place to work.
So we've added new features to make this process better. People can now report comments as well as Workplace posts. We've also made updates to the reasons for reporting a post - so you can now provide your own reason if you prefer. This will help Workplace admins make a more informed decision on how to respond.
To report a post or comment on Workplace, go to the “...” menu and select Report post or Report this comment. If you select “I don't think this should be on Workplace,” you'll have the option to hide all posts from that person, report the post or comment to the Workplace admin team.
Now when you decide to report to your admin you'll be able to choose from a list of options or provide your own custom reason.
