Receive notifications for comments to announcements.

I'd love to be able to receive notifications (either internally or via email) when someone replies to an announcement.  I'm afraid I keep missing comments if I'm not intentionally looking for them.

    Any updates on this? I'm finding that I am missing important questions from students and teachers when they comment on bulletins.

    thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    We’re monitoring the needs for notifications closely. It’s an issue with a lot of considerations, and we don’t want to rush a conclusion.

    I do like the option of modifying notifications. I would prefer that by default all users get the notifications and then can turn them off.


    Currently for email alerts, you have to turn on notifications and I have no idea what students or teachers are getting email alerts.  For comments though, emails are not necessary. Just the notification icon within itslearning.

    I agree that it's currently easy to miss comments. Not sure if I want more notifications though, but perhaps it could be optional (e.g. under my settings & alerts). It's also impossible to see which comments I've read or not. It should be possible to tick off comments as "read", like a checker box or similar. This is a challenge when your bulletin board announcements contain a lot of comments. I lose track of which I've seen or not. The only option now is to delete comments and/or disable comments.
