You already know that with Beehively you can send announcements to your schools, classrooms, and groups with ease, but today, we’re bringing some exciting new features to the Beehively experience. With Announcement Templates, you are able to design custom header and footers that can be easily applied to any of your Announcements. Here’s an overview of how they work:

To start, go to Administration > Content Templates. From this screen, you will see what your Default Announcement Template will look like. Here, you are able to edit the Header and Footer sections of the template. Your Announcement content will fit right in the middle. Once you’re happy with how it looks, hit Preview if you’d like to see what it will look like in an inbox. If you’re totally happy with it, go ahead and hit Save.

When creating an announcement, you will see the new “Select Template” area under the Announcement Title. From here, you can use your template if you wish. When you’re ready to send your announcement, you can use the new Preview feature to check out what it will look like on mobile, desktop, or tablet views.

We hope you find these new features useful and look forward to continuously improving our software to bring you a fast and easy communication experience. If you have any questions about this new feature or any aspect of Beehively, please reach out to us at
