Approving Announcements Using Newsroom

Approving an Announcement

There are two ways to approve the release of an ASX announcement if you have selected Authorise as the approval process for announcements.

The first Approval option is via email.

When IRM Newsroom detects an announcement has been lodged via the ASX Online platform, an email will be sent to the company secretary or any user that is registered with the IRM Newsroom.

The Approval Required email has three options Release, Edit and Reject. To release the announcement select the Release button in the email.

This will release the announcement to the channels that have been set up in the distribution channels settings.

You will be redirected to a page confirming the release of your announcement.


You will also receive an email confirming the release of the announcement.

The second way is to log in to HQi and approve the release of an announcement.

To do this, select the Pending button under the IRM Newsroom section of HQi.

You will be taken to the following screen.

The announcement that needs to be approved will have a status of Pending.

On the right hand side of this menu you will see the Release/Reject options.

To authorise the announcement, select Release.


Once you have clicked the Release option, the following message will appear. To approve, select the Yes button.


Once you have selected Yes, the release will be authorised and the announcement will be sent out to the distribution channels as per the set up.

A confirmation will appear on the Authorise screen at the top of your page.

You will also receive an email notification.
