How do I edit an announcement in a course?

If you forgot to add something to your announcement, you can easily edit and add more information.

If the steps in this lesson do not match what is displayed in your course, learn how to use the Announcements Redesign interface.

Notes:

  • Editing an announcement will create a notification in the User Dashboard and Course Activity Stream. If you want users to receive the edited announcement via their notification settings, you will need to create a new announcement.
  • Your course must be published for students to receive announcement notifications. Students do not receive new announcement notifications for announcements imported from another Canvas course.
