Announcement dates

Jump to solution

I am able to read my announcements, but under the "Posted On" section to the right, there are no dates listed for all of my courses.  Is this a setting I need to change somewhere?  I don't think it would be huge issue but one of my classes has older content (random due dates listed in the body) that I know are not meant for me.  

Thanks,

YaVonne

Hi @YaVonne 

It is my experience that if there is no "Posted on" date, then that announcement was posted without using the "Delay Posting" tool.  It was published when saved.  I wasn't able to find any reference to this in the Canvas Guides though.

I would set future post dates or delete any announcements you do not want student to view at the start of the course. I typically set post dates for all of my announcements at the start of the semester, but I've also deleted them and just copied them over from a previous courses as the semester progresses.  I didn't find either method better than the other.
