ANGEL Tip of the Day #42 – Announcements
Lots of folks have experienced slowness on ANGEL this week and they are working on it at the system level. However, if you’ve noticed the Courses page of a particular course is loading slowly, the culprit might be old announcements.
When ANGEL loads your Courses page, it loads all of your announcements, even the ones not showing. So, if you have lots of old announcements, delete them and you’ll have faster performance.
Also note that if you copy and paste your announcement content from Word, underlying Word tags bog the system down even more. So, I’d discourage you from copying and pasting announcements from Word. If you must, be sure to use the “Paste from Word” button.
