Keep old announcements?

How do I keep old announcements in a course without having them sent out at some future time? I dated old announcements in 301 (recently finished) for this week, so that they would not go out, but they were all sent today. I don't want to delete them - I thought dating them after the course would allow them to be in the course, but not be sent?? How do I do that?

Hi Pruthvi,

If the announcements are old and already posted in the course, why not simply leave the dates as they are? 


Thank you for your reply. Dating them past the end date still sends them out. 

Can you clarify what you are doing--are you changing dates on existing ("old") announcements, or are you posting new announcements with dates outside of the date range of the course?

No, I want to keep old announcements without have them send out. I am trying to change dates on existing but not be sent.

What is the reason for changing the dates?  It is the change which triggers the notification.
