Introduction / Why use this addon?

The Simple Announcements Addon gives you the ability to display announcements in your Confluence Cloud instance. These banners can be shown on any Confluence page.

If you're asking yourself why you would want to use this addon, the answer is simple:

Atlassian doesn't provide a good way of showing announcements in Confluence cloud, making it cumbersome to use the existing Confluence 'header' feature.

With this plugin, you can easily create rich announcements, schedule them, and decide whether they should be shown to logged in users, or public users.
