  1. If you have a Pro Account, you can create a Broadcast from the communication tab. Broadcast allows you to send a message to devices or groups. You can choose if the message needs to be acknowledged or not. Once a Broadcast is scheduled it will be listed here as well. 
    1. Broadcast can be repeated or one-time use, with an option to acknowledge or just set as a quick announcement. 
    2. If selecting for a broadcast to repeat, please keep in mind that you need to select a start date first and then select the day it needs to be repeated for. If you are setting a Broadcast for devices in another timezone, there is now an option to select your time zone for that certain Broadcast, otherwise, it will default to your time zone.
