Images don’t display in emailed Announcements

Internet Explorer users need to be aware of a new issue with announcements that include embedded images. Images will not display if an announcement is emailed. The issue only occurs if the announcement was created using Internet Explorer, and only affects users who read the announcement outside of the VLE.

A workaround is to use Chrome or Firefox when creating the announcement.

Double spacing – VLE emails

There is a known issue where emails sent using the VLE’s Email Tool will have double spacing, even though they display with single line spacing in the Content Editor.

A workaround is to hold down the Shift and Enter keys instead of Enter when composing an email.

Fixed: Manual enrolments & Organisation emails

Two issues introduced during the summer 2014 upgrade are now fixed:

Manual enrolments – Staff can once again manually enrol users onto VLE modules/organisations (with the student/participant role).

NOTE: Any staff and students that are either delivering or officially studying a module should continue to be added via the usual method in Banner. Further information on enrolments is available in our guide.

Email tool in organisations – It is now possible to send emails via organisations.
