We will be soon adding a new feature to our VoicePing application called, Broadcast Only Group. This feature can be particularly helpful for Team Leaders or Supervisors who might need to send urgent messages or even announce an emergency to specific people in a group.
As an admin, you will be able to choose users who will have the Broadcast role. In this case, we have named our channel as #Broadcaster-test and added 4 users in the channel.
On the far right of the screen, you will get to check or uncheck the Broadcaster checkbox role of whomever you have added in your channel. Pretty easy task and straightforward for your admins to do this.
Once you have successfully chosen your Broadcasters, they should be able to send text and even voice messages in the group. For normal users, they will only be able to read the broadcaster's messages or listen to the voice message. The send text/voice messages for normal users is set to disabled by default.
The message “Only broadcasters can send in this group” will appear in the text box field for normal users. Other features such as Send Video, Attach Picture, SOS, Locate Members are also disabled for them in the channel.
You should be able to see this feature in the next major update of our VoicePing app.
