    Canvas should allow the option of having Announcements populate the homepage.  I post weekly announcements in my course and I want students to have immediate access to that info when they first login into the Canvas home page.  Forcing students to click to announcements reduces the likelihood they will read the announcements. Announcements as home page is a basic feature of any LMS and I think it is a glaring omission that Canvas does not offer this feature.
