Posting a Notice

This support page describes how to post an a notice to the Notices block on your Myplace class page.

Notices are the main method for sending information to classes (or groups within classes) and are displayed to students via Myplace (on their homepage and in each of the classes), in the Mobile App and delivered by email to their Strathclyde email address.

To target courses or groups

To change the target audience, click on the Choose button.

You may target:

  • whole classes
  • one or more groups within a class
  • one or more groupings within a class
  • combinations of the above

To select / deselect a target click on the checkbox to the left hand side.

You can use the > arrows to expand Classes to show the groups and groupings within that class.

To target specific users

You can also type or paste registration numbers, DS usernames, or emails separated by spaces or commas.

Email addresses, Registration numbers and DS usernames will be recognised and checked against the database of Myplace users. 

Anything which cannot be recognised as a registration number, DS username or email address will display a warning symbol, and will prevent the message from being sent until removed.

Compose your notice

In the Send Notice section of the form you will compose the message that will be sent to the students.

You may use formatting in the message, but please do not insert images as these will not always display if the students read the notice in their email clients

Add any attachments.

If you have any files you wish to be sent alongside the notice then you can use the Attachments section to upload these to Myplace.

These will be displayed in the notice when viewed in Myplce and will be emailed to students too

Most email systems will restrict the size of attachment that can be sent and received. So please do not use this for distributing large files.

Additional Notifications

The notice will be sent to all of the students in the selected audiences, however if you wish to include other roles, such as a tutors or lecturers, then you can select these roles.

Notices are always sent to the student role, you cannot remove this and only send to one of the additional roles shown here.
