I appreciate all the ideas around modifying announcements and how they display, such as Publish and Unpublish Announcements, and I agree with so many! But this question regards the current functionality.
I have a master course with dates set up for a prior semester. I have successfully imported it to a running course space, changed the dates, and had all assignments, quizzes, announcements, and other dated items move without a problem.
Yet, back in the master space, if try to modify the date and/or time in an announcement (which naturally has a post date that has passed), I cannot modify it. It defaults back to what it was. I am (as expected) able to edit the date and/or time of announcements are set to post in the future.
I would be able to modify a quiz date (and so on) in this master course space, even though that has passed. Could someone let me know if this is a bug or expected behavior within announcements?
