Tap Share with more people
Select any teams that you want to add to the audience of the post then tap “okay” in the upper right-hand corner
The post will be shared with any additional teams you selected, and a note will be placed in the comment to tell everyone that you added to the audience. This is so that the post's author does not get confused when they see that their post now has a larger audience than they selected.
When a post isn't getting the engagement you would like, or you're concerned that it may be missed due to many other posts being sent simultaneously, you can promote the post to the Featured post carousel. For more information on the carousel, please see this article.
