When do alerts show?

Items show in the widget in the following situations:
  • On the day a Markbook item is due, the alert starts showing on the staff member's Alert's section. It will never show before the item is due.
  • The items don't have to be published to portal in order for the alert to show
  • The alert shows for the number of days after the due date based on the setting under Options > General settings called Classwork and homework in Portal
    Eg If the setting is 2 weeks, and due date is April 2, the alert appears in the widget until April 16.
  • The alert shows until the staff member clicks the acknowledge 'tick' icon on the alert. The alert will not show again
