Announcements – remember to add a ‘display until’ date

It is important to add a ‘display until’ date to Announcements. If you do not, they will remain in your students’ Announcements lists on the Portal/VLE for as long as the Module/Organisation exists and is available to students.

Please also use the ‘Permanent’ option with care. If you select this, your announcement appears towards the top of the list making it hard for students to spot recent announcements. We have received complaints about this from students.

We will investigate whether we can automatically add an end date to announcements on previous years’ modules/organisations.

Comments are welcome, however if you need help or advice please contact the ISS helpdesk on tel (0113) 343 3333, or helpdesk@leeds.ac.uk.
