Lannouncement is the electronic equivalent of a bulletin board. Lannouncement is designed to allow people in your organization to post bulletins, distribute documents or other files, and engage in on-line discussions. It is a "groupware" product. People post messages to the board so that others may select and view them. Users can elect to print the message or save attachments associated to the message. You may join in a public dialog with other Lannouncement users regarding a message or initiate your own discussion.
Lannouncement is organized into two types of messages, Topics and Dialogs. Topics are documents that can only be read. Typical uses of a topic would be the posting of new user information, a listing of an organization's phone numbers and structure, advertising items for sale, or the distribution of the Corporate Handbook. Dialogs are public forums where information can be exchanged amongst a group of users. Dialogs may be joined by anyone, but can only be initiated by users with create access to the subject. Typical uses of a dialog might be a special interest discussion group, a customer feedback area, or a help desk question and answer area.
