Course Role Permission to create Announcements?


I'm looking to modify one of my custom course roles to give them permission to post new announcements to the course.    Which of the permissions is needed to allow this?

Thanks, Glen

Hi  @glparker , I've moved this question to the Canvas Admins​ space to get responses from those who customarily deal with roles and permissions.

I think you would need to give that custom course role the "Send messages to the entire class" permission.  When I tested this out, the user was given the Announcements option in the navigation menu.
