How do I view Announcements as a student?
The Announcements Index Page allows you to view and filter announcements in your course. You can also receive new announcements via Canvas notifications,view announcements on the Recent Activity Dashboard, or view announcements in the To Do list.
If the steps in this lesson do not match what is displayed in your course, learn how to use the Announcements Redesign interface.
In Course Navigation, click the Announcements link.
In Announcements, you can view all the announcements in your course.
Announcements are listed in reverse chronological order with the newest appearing first and the older announcements appearing towards the bottom.
Each announcement includes the title of the announcement , the picture of the user who posted the announcement , an unread indicator near unread announcements , the announcement post date , and the number of unread/total replies in the announcement .
Note: If an announcement shows the letter U in place of a profile picture, the announcement was imported or copied from another course in Canvas. Additionally, copied announcements do not include a posted date and time.
To view only unread or all announcements, use the filter drop-down menu . Additionally, to search for an announcement, you can type an announcement title, a user name, or a keyword in the Search field .
