Not sure, the student always know in advance what it does in TA for 
example. Anyway, my main problem is the forcing, I guess. When the 
learner knows in advance about the importance if giving good names and 
descriptions and add easy to reach tools, maybe that is enough.

I disabled the alert for tomorrows class. I can explain the Journal 
concept and the importance before starting and see if the students would 
do pay attention to naming etc then.
