How do you handle mobile notifications for announcments?

Discussion created by ta0042817 on Feb 12, 2018

When sending push notifications about Blackboard announcements to our institution's mobile app, we use the date_modified to trigger notifications ,however this has recently caused an issue where an instructor reordered the notifications in the GUI, leading the date_modified to change and hence some old announcements were re-pushed out to students leading to significant confusion.

How does your institution handle announcements to push out? Do you use date_created or date_modified?

Thanks in advance!
