Admin Members of your network may send you a Broadcast announcement every now and then. These help ensure that you, along with all your colleagues, receive the same updates in real-time, regardless of job function or location.
Broadcast is a one-way communication channel for admin to reach out to you. Once you receive the message, feel free to ✔️ it to let your Admin know that you have acknowledged it. Do note that this is the only way you can interact with a Broadcast.
At the Eko dashboard, you may notice banner updates at the top of the screen. Scroll through and click on each announcement to read further about it. These are important pieces of content that your Admin members think are valuable to help you in your role.
❗Remarks: If you can not see one in your Recents tab, it’s because your admin hasn’t set one up yet.
The Eko Library is an internal wiki for your company. It’s a place where you can find all helpful materials and documents needed for your role. With everything centralized in one place, you no longer have to rummage through folders or outdated paper files to find the right information you need.
❗Remarks : If the Library appears empty, it’s because your Admin hasn't uploaded anything yet. Please contact your Admin to upload the content.
Juggling multiple tools at work is inefficient and time consuming, not to mention the effort it takes to remember various logins and URLs. Through Portal, you can access all the tools you need in one place without leaving the Eko platform.
