      Description

      Instructors who are planning ahead are scheduling the releases of posts (such as in the Announcements forum overview). Unfortunately, it is displaying to the students the underlying creation/modification date and not the date that it became available to the students.

      There's quite a few MDL issues out there about similar things, but I could not find one that specifically referred to this behavior.
