Announcement feature requests - duplicate, schedule, order and contact individual students

Many teachers in my building want to use Announcements to share student links to daily activities. Features that would save time:

  1. Teachers could duplicate a previous announcement and edit the template attached. 
  2. Schedule announcements so they could prepare the night before and not worry about sending it the morning of - especially with remote learning
  3. Ability to have the most recent announcement first on the the student's in box, not last. 
  4. Be able to Message individual students since most elementary students do not have email.

  • 100% agree with all of these!!! I need to be able to schedule announcements! I have to rush to get them sent out in the morning in a 15 minute time window.

  • Agree with all of Nicole's suggested updates!  We are in desperate need for a messaging center or a way for teachers and students to privately message each other, not through an activity!

  • I came to make a post asking for the ability to schedule announcements. It would be SO helpful for so many reasons!!

  • Most everything digitally is set to to have most recent go to the top but for some reason the Announcements go to the bottom which is counter intuitive. Announcements were never used much when we were face-to-face but now that we're in home learning this feature is paramount unless we have to go use two other programs do accomplish what we'd like to be able to accomplish all within Seesaw. 

    I know we're asking Seesaw to be more than they were ever designed it for. The purpose and function has changed with the growing needs. We want to consolidate, those of us who love Seesaw so much. We appreciate all the changes that we saw over the summer, especially linking within a Slide. Now we really need engineers' attention paid to the Announcements feature. I know our first day of school is going to be rough because we were depending on Announcements feature but it's so limiting I'm afraid teachers will just give up on it and use Google Classroom or something else, which makes things confusing for families especially when we told families that Seesaw was our main tool for virtual learning.

  • I would really appreciate it if there was an option to schedule an announcement just like activities. Making the most recent announcement show up at the top would be so beneficial as well so students don’t have to be looking for it. Really hope this matter gets looked at. 🤞🏼

  • I agree with Juanita. It would be extremely helpful if we could schedule announcements and they could default up to the top.
