We love the delay sending feature in Announcements. Can we have the ability to delay sending announcements to specific groups and not just the entire course?
Hey Celia Flores Welcometo the Canvas Community! We are so glad to have you here and I am glad you shared your interest in this. I think I have some good news. I was just reviewing a related idea, Tailor Announcements to specific sections or groups, and this idea has just been developed and is slated to go out this Saturday. You can read more about this in the Release Notes. Here is a link to the relevant section on Announcements from this Saturday's notes. This means, after this Saturday, you should be able to create a delayed announcement for just a specific section of your course. For more on sections, check out How do I add a section to a course as an instructor?
Since this idea sounds like it is already on the way to completion, I am going to archive this request to keep the list of open ideas streamlined. Again, we are pleased to have you here and I hope you will continue to explore the rest of the Community to see what it has to offer. Check out the Getting Started page if you need a place to begin. Let us know in Find Answers if you need anything.
Adam Williams, within a group's Announcements, the "Delay posting" checkbox does not appear, even on our beta instance where Tailor Announcements to specific sections is available (tailor to groups was not implemented).
For that reason, I'd suggest reopening this idea for a vote.
You may be right. Despite the use of the word "group" I read this as a way to accomplish delayed postings to subsets of a course.
Celia Flores, I have placed this idea in moderation. Would you mind letting us know if the upcoming functionality would meet your needs or if you are looking for this functionality with Announcements that are only posted within Canvas Course Groups (What are Groups?)
For posterity, these are archived ideas, but we have seen this before as it relates to Canvas Course Groups: Time Release Group Announcements and Allow 'delay posting' in Canvas Group announcement
