Note: To complete these procedures, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. To determine your role, follow the directions in Participant roles. For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and roles: Overview.

To post an announcement that you previously saved as a draft, follow these steps:

  1. In the menubar of the relevant course or project site, click Announcements.

  2. The title of any draft announcement that belongs to you will have the prefix "Draft" appended to the title. To open a draft, click its title.

  3. Make any needed updates or changes. To choose how to notify participants about a posting, from the "Email Notification" drop-down menu, select either None - No notification, Low - Only participants who have opted in, or High - All participants.

  4. To preview your draft before posting it, click Preview. To save your changes without posting, click Save Draft. To save your changes and post without previewing first, click Add Announcement. To cancel your changes, click Cancel.
