Announcements should default to closed for comments

Idea created by Joel Mills on Jan 12, 2016
    This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas


    An announcement is just that. It is usually a push out form the teacher to announce something without the need for commentary behind it.

    E.G. "The room has changed for today to room 1234"

    "Tomorrow you need to bring your iPad for the session!"


    My idea is to make announcements "closed for comments" by default with the option to open them up for comments after the announncement has been posted.


    Makes sense to me... Does it to you? If so, please vote this one up.


    We have discussion forums for discussions and places where we can invite feedback etc... announcements are just that.
