Do I have to sign off announcements?
Yes, we recommend you to sign off every announcement you post. The reason for this is that when announcements are sent via email and students read them from their inbox, Canvas does not specify who the sender is. The details of the sender can only be viewed if the announcement is being read from within Canvas.
