About the Salesforce Announcement Object
Represents a Chatter group announcement. This object is available in API version 30.0 and later.


Usage

Group owners, managers, and users with the “Modify All Data” permission can use the Announcement object to create, edit, and delete group announcements. Creating a group announcement is a three-step process.

  • Use the FeedItem object to create a text post with the announcement’s content. Use the CollaborationGroup record you want to post the announcement to as the parent of this feed item.
  • Next, use the feed item ID and an expiration date to create the announcement record.
  • Finally, update the AnnouncementId field in the CollaborationGroup record with the ID of the announcement you created.

To delete the group announcement, simply delete the AnnouncementId value in the CollaborationGroup record. To restore a group announcement, update the AnnouncementId field for a group with the announcement’s ID. The expiration date for the announcement should be in the future and the feed item used to create the announcement should be parented by the same group.
