Jennifer,

There is a methid within Workflows that allows you to "post "announcements" to the Activity Feeds. There is no method within worflows to publish a regular CRM Announcement.

Would that suffice?

Can you provide more information on posting announcements? I do not see this feature on the process development screens. Ideally we want to have the announcement autogenerate in the announcement area. I believe you are talking about the social networking activity feeds feature which we have not put into our system yet.
