Announcements:  Date Restricted, Email Announcement

This Blackboard Help page says,


"If you set an announcement to appear in the future and choose to send an email announcement, emails are sent only to students who were in your course at that time".


As far as I can see, it is not possible to set an Announcement for the future and send an Email Announcement, because you get the message, 


"The Email Announcement checkbox cannot be ticked if the Display After time is in the future." if you try to Submit such an Announcement.  


Our Admin team would like to do just this: set up Announcements in the future and have an email go out when the time arrives.  Can it be done?


Thanks for any advice
