Hi all,

This might be the oddest question you see on this forum today.

We have a horn that we toot when someone makes a sale.

However, due to covid the office is split in half so we don't quite have the same effect with the horn.

I'm wondering is there some kind of way to send out a big celebratory message within teams to everybody when a sale is made. Could be triggered off a button or anything, not necessarily off the email confirming the sale.

Hi @jcoughlan

Use an announcement and mention the whole team in the general channel of a team

Announcement
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/send-an-announcement-to-a-channel-8f244ea6-235a-4dcc-9143...

Mention
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/use-mentions-to-get-someone-s-attention-in-teams-eb4f059d...

A gif in the announcement may also be good to get the visual attention here

Hope that answers your question!

Best, Chris
