When a file is attached to an announcement with the delay post until date when does the student get notified of the file attachment?
Cynthia, greetings! It’s been my experience that they get the file when the announcement is released, but as to a notification that a file has been added to a class... hmm... that’s something different... and I’m honestly not sure. You would think that they shouldn’t get the notification until the announcement is released, but I’ve homestly never double checked.
Some students opt-in for notifications with any addition to Files. So, even if you waited to send out the Announcement, some students may already have known about the attachment's (file's) existence.
How do I set my Canvas notification preferences as a student?
