Hello! If the course is published, but I send an announcement before the course start date (as set in settings), can students see announcements before the course starts?
Hi Daniel Mello,
Yes! If your students already have access to the course, they should be able to see announcements even if the course hasn't officially started.
Okay, thanks! Good to know.
Hello Lucas Moreira,
I'm trying to achieve the same results -- sending Announcements to enrolled students prior to the course start date -- and it does not work. This was confirmed by Instructure Support after I submitted a ticket - that students can't get notifications until the course officially starts.
Can you confirm that you got this to work, and if so, with which settings?
If I remember correctly, I had to ensure the Course Start Date in Settings was set to some day before the day in which I was posting the announcement. So, on the day I wanted to post an announcement, I went into Settings, changed the Start date to the day prior, then posted the announcement. Make sense?
NOTE: depending on your situation, it may be inadvisable to modify the Start Date. Do so at your own discretion.
Hope this helps!
