To copy an announcement from one course to another

  4. Choose Copy to Other Courses

  5. Checkmark the “Publish Announcement on Copy” checkbox. This setting will publish the announcement at the time of copying. If you do not want to publish the announcement, only copy it, do not checkmark this item. Not publishing will make the announcement a draft in the new location allowing you to edit or publish at a later date.

  6. Locate the course or courses you would like the announcement to be copied to.

    1. Be sure you are copying to the correct course and semester

  7. Press “Next”

  8. The next screen will show you where the announcement is going and allow you to make a final decision about publishing. If anything needs to change press the “Back” button

  9. When ready press “Copy”

You can customize the message using replacement strings. This can include the student’s name {FirstName}, the course name {OrgUnitName} as well as a variety of other details.
