To add an update to your project, click the tool button in the top right corner and choose the project you want to manage. Go to "Project" and choose "Communication" from the list. On the left, you'll see a menu with communication options. Choose "Updates" and click "Add an update". You’ll see the following editor:
Add the title, abstract, contents, define the audience. You can also upload an image or add a poll if you want. Remember to save the changes before publishing. You can preview the update ("view update" button in the top right corner) and when you're ready, toggle the switch next to the “published” section:
Then, click "Save". Your update is ready!
Publishing an update makes it visible in the updates section of your project, but it doesn't automatically send notifications. Unpublished updates have a "draft" label on them.
To send a notification about the update, go to your update list and click "send notifications". The notifications will be sent to people defined in the target audience (for example, everyone, backers only, specific backer groups):
It may take a while to send all notifications, so don't worry when backers won't receive them immediately.
