Announcements play a crucial role in course communication. They ensure that students stay informed about important deadlines and course materials. Administrators and developers now have additional REST API capabilities to streamline integrations and save time. New announcements filtering options allow administrators and integrated tools to retrieve data more efficiently. This optimizes audit and search processes, reducing query volume and data processing after retrieval.

 New filter options:

  • Creation Date: Retrieve announcements based on their specific creation date
  • Modified Date: Retrieve announcements based on their last modification date
  • Availability: Filter announcements based on their availability status

For administrators: The required privileges for Announcements API remain unchanged.
