Ability to customise behaviour of announcement email notifications

    As explained in New announcement email behaviour in 2018 Q2  the behaviour of individual announcement notification emails has been changed without consultation nor communication.  This undisclosed functionality change means that when an announcement notification email is sent it does not include the text of the body of the announcement and replaces it with a link to sign into the Blackboard environment to view the announcement.


    To add insult to injury an enormous Blackboard logo graphic is embedded in the email, along with a link to Blackboard corporate website.


    In my opening post in this thread I detail the change in behaviour and why I do not consider it to be a satisfactory change.


    This idea is to request functionality to allow administrators to:


    • Change the behaviour so that the text of the body of the announcement is included within the notification email (i.e. restoring the functionality that has been taken away)
    • Customise the logo
    • Customise the corporate link
