    In some classes, TAs and professors often have to send Canvas Announcements about changing their office hours for a specific day. Those are generally one-liners, and seeing these notifications from mobile, for instance, already fulfills their purpose.

     

    However, Canvas requires users to click each one of the announcements individually and visit their pages to mark them as read, which creates a buildup of stale notifications.

     

    A button to mark all announcements as read (or to batch select announcements and mark multiple as read) would be helpful to filter new, relevant announcements from old ones without wasting time clicking through each of then.
