Announcements

Jump to solution

I previewed the dashboard with a small cohort of our curriculum teams this morning. One question that came up was the longevity of announcements both in the homeroom space and on the subject cards. Will the most recent announcement always display or will it ever expire? I've been in some courses recently where the last announcement was posted in October.

Hey @audra_agnelly, here's how it works right now: The latest homeroom announcement is the only one that will display on the dashboard, and it will disappear after two weeks. If there's no homeroom announcement to show, students won't see anything in that space aside from the cards for their course subjects, and teachers will see a prompt to create a homeroom announcement.

Thanks @peytoncraighill !

What about the announcements that appear on the individual subject cards? Do those expire after 2 weeks as well?

Yep!

The intention here is to provide students and parents with a relatively fresh view when they log in. Also worth noting that these 'expired' announcements are only expired in that they won't be featured on the dashboard after two weeks; they'll still appear in the schedule if students/parents want to see old announcements.

Is there anyway to "pin" the announcement to the top of the list or add dates for the announcement to be active?  Thank you
