4.0 Working with Broadcasts

A broadcast message is a message that can either be sent to the entire system or to individual users. There are two types of broadcast message types: a system broadcast that is sent to all users and a broadcast message that is sent to selected users.

A broadcast message is a one-way message; you cannot respond to it. By default, broadcast messaging to other users in enabled, and system broadcasts are disabled. A system administrator can change the defaults.
