Student App Push Notifications

We have been encouraging use of the mobile app for students for a couple of months now. However, we are finding that announcements sent by the tutor are not being pushed to the app. Instead the student will only see it if they open the app then go to the activity stream. In Blackboard's help documentation, it says push notifications are for:

  • Course available
  • Item graded
  • Test due
  • Test overdue

I can't believe that a mobile app will not allow for announcements to be sent to students. Looking through all the settings at the user and system level, everything looks to be fine.


Is there anyone that can confirm that announcements are not sent through the student app, and if so, do you know if/when it will be added to the app?
