Sending info messages

Reach members of your community effectively through info messages. See here for instructions on how to send messages in the HeiaHeia app and browser version.

Popular ways to use info messages: 

  • Communicating the highlights of the HeiaHeia challenges (e.g. numbers of sport types, achievements, etc.)
  • Motivating and inspiring: information briefings and links to useful information sources.
  • Sharing successes stories, e.g. through pictures and videos (the info message will support links to Vimeo and Youtube). 

Where will your information messages be posted for your community members? 

  • Members of your community will see your message in the news feed of the app. 
  • All your messages are collected on the pin board, which can be found under "Communities and friends" (see picture). Your messages will be saved here so they are available also afterwards.

  • Depending on the user's settings, info messages are also delivered to community members by email. 

  • In the browser version, the messages will appear in the user's news feed, as well as on the community's own page, which can be found in HeiaHeia under My Account -> Company/Organisation Name.
