Detailed Information about Staff Messages:

The Staff Messages feature can be used to improve communication with your entire team. From this page you can compose a message to any or all of the staff members you have entered into HostelSnap. You can also choose yourself if you'd like to receive a copy of this message. 

One great thing about Staff Messages is their easy-to-locate, hard-to-miss benefit. These are separate from email, which often gets full of so many messages that the important ones slip through. By keeping them separate, your staff is more likely to see what they need to right away.
