No Comments on Imported Announcements

One of our instructors discovered that Canvas will not notify you of comments made on an announcement that you’ve imported from a previous offering of the class. So, for example, if I import all of my ‘Welcome to Lesson X’ announcements and then adapt them, I won't see any comments on these announcements, just on newly written ones. One of the design team talked to Canvas support and it turns out if it’s an old announcement, you will not receive notifications of commenting. Considering how often people repurpose these announcements, it is definitely worth noting.
