Is it just me or what - when did the Announcements page start showing names of the person posting? Good idea. Now, can a column be included to show the date added to the page, not necessarily actual date it was posted live? Could items have a sort option? Like in alpha order - the click up/down is ok if you only have a few items.

I use the Announcements for storage, when I am trying to "clean" it up or move items back to the Home Page it is rather cumbersome going back and forth trying to figure out what needs to be ditched, especially ditching and replacing with Mixpod players. It never occured to me to date them to start with but a column on the list page would be very helpful.

Announcements have been showing the name of the person who posted them for quite some time. This has always been useful on site with multiple admins or where classmates are permitted to post announcements.

There are no plans at this time to change this feature, but the idea of managing the list with a sortable table by date or alpha is a good one. However, implementing that is a fairly complicated proposition, especially if want to maintain the ability to manually reorder the list, which we absolutely do. I can put this on the wishlist for review as a possible feature addition, but I would not expect any action on it short of a complete overhaul of the service.

Well, that's how much I pay attention to the names. A sort option is just an idea for down the road.

Would it be possible to auto insert a date, like on the Edit Site Pages page list?

Theoretically, that wouldn't be too difficult, but where would we fit it? We'll have to work out how to make that happen.

Thanks, I guess the programmers could squeeze it in someplace.
