I would like to hide old announcements in my courses. I do not need them deleted, I just want to hide them if that is possible. If so, directions on how to do that are appreciated!
Hi Kymbre Veilleux - You and about 137+ other people would love to do this, and unfortunately this is currently not possible in Canvas. I got that number from this Feature Idea: Publish and Unpublish Announcements , and you can see that although it's a year old and HAS received a response from Instructure, this has still not been developed yet. What you basically want to do is be able to "unpublish" old announcements that have imported over from a previous course site, similar to the way other things can be unpublished elsewhere. You may want to scan through that discussion under the Feature Idea for some ideas. The always-resourceful and great Stefanie Sanders suggests one common workaround of doing a selective import rather than a total import. Even if you do not have a sandbox course site, that's a good idea to at least remove ones that you KNOW you will not be using again. I hear this many times from my own faculty, and everyone agrees this ability is overdue, but I'm afraid there's little that can be done right now. Let's hope soon!
Yes, I would love to be able to hide old announcements from a previous semester, so I can reuse these comments, editing them when necessary. Why can't we do this?
What I did was delay the posting until later. Announcements that I will use next fall for example I pick a date in August and then they will not show up.
This was exactly what I needed! Thanks for the suggestion!
