Product announcements

We update Aha! products frequently — with new functionality, improvements, and fixes. This setting suppresses the in-app system broadcasts that pop up when Aha! announces new updates. It affects only your user, and no one else in your Aha! account.

Even if you disable product announcements, you will always be able to see technical or urgent broadcasts for scheduled server maintenance or to report an outage.

  • Click the toggle to Enable or Disable product announcements.

You can still stay on top of recent product updates from the ? menu in the navigation bar. Open that menu and expand the What's new section to see recent product announcements.


Document templates

Document templates provide a ready-to-use format for the types of whiteboards you create most. Aha! Whiteboards offers a library of templates to choose from when you create a new whiteboard. If you have specific details you like to include in your personal whiteboard, or if you want to save time setting up the structure of whiteboards you regularly create, you can create custom templates that only you can access. Once you have created a personal whiteboard template, you can access it in the template library from your My work page or from any workspace you have li access to.

Custom document templates is part of the Aha! Whiteboards Advanced plan.

From the Personal document templates section, click Add document templates. Customize the template to your needs — add tables, images, and more.

After you have created a template, click it or hover over it to Edit it, or hover over it to Delete it. When you are ready to use a template, you will find it in the Personal section of your template library.
