It would be great to have an option to have a banner which would allow to make announcements to users. We have over 600 and communicating to them is a challenge. This works great in Atlassian products like Confluence
Throwing 3 votes on this. We've implemented Octopus in a large enterprise and have a sizable userbase. Email blasts are all but useless for getting people to actually read announcements. A banner would be incredibly useful; we use a plugin which creates one in TeamCity and it has proven quite effective for the admin team in communicating info to our users.
The maintenance mode banner Octopus has is already a perfect example; we just need a feature to give us an additional banner which we can toggle on/off with customizable text.
