Announcement Order Question

Hi Everybody!

I have a quick question that I'm hoping somebody can answer for me.  I'm having problems this semester with my announcements posting in the correct order.  I basically have all my announcements prepped ahead of time for the semester.  However, when they are posting to the classroom, the new announcements are ending up below multiple other announcements, and I'm having to go in and manually re-arrange them every time a new one posts.  Have any of you been experiencing this problem?  I've never had this happen before; my announcements have always just posted in the correct order in past semesters.  I'm worried that students are missing my new announcements because they don't see the new one right away at the top of the page.  Is there a way to get this fixed so I don't have to re-order them myself every time a new one posts?  I typically set my announcements to post at midnight of the day they are set to post, so there are still at least 8-9 hours before I log on for the day where the order is mixed up.

Any thoughts, suggestions, or fixes?  Thank you!

  • It has been annoying.

  • I experience the same issue for the first time this semester and found I had to republish them with a new date/time in the order I wanted them to sit. Maybe reordering them would be easier, but if I reorder them on my end, does it reorder them on the student end? 

  • Korissa--I wish I could tag Cindy Goodwill on this post. She's had a similar challenge this semester. I think she's manually re-ordering them each time, but maybe she's figured out a better workaround? Here's  link to the discussion where she asked a similar question: https://onlineinstruction.ning.com/i-learn-3-0-forum/announcement-o...

    Hi Everyone, Am I just going crazy or did the the announcement order change? It used to be that the announcements were always in order in the course…

    • I did submit a fix ticket and I was told that they were aware of the problem and they were working on it, and I would have to manually reorder my announcements in the mean time. It's a pain, but I've gotten used to it.
