Currently, instructors in a course (Teacher- and TA-role) also receive notifications for announcements that are created in group home pages if they have enabled the Announcement notification in their notifications settings. We are receiving a lot of complaints from teachers about this because it means that they get a lot of irrelevant notifications because announcements in group pages are almost always only relevant for the students in the group because they use it to communicate with each other.
To stop these notifications, instructors can now only disable the notifications for all announcements, meaning that they also don't receive course announcements anymore. This is not desirable.
I can think of the following solutions:
Easiest: keep the current notification settings and only send notifications of group announcement to student members of the group.
If you want to keep the option for instructors to receive group announcements: make 2 different announcement notifications settings: Course announcement and Group announcement. The default for Group announcement would preferrably be 'Do not send me anything'.
