      Description

      ISSUE

      The "Add Attachments" process for an administrator account in the "Announcements" tool of "Administrative Workspace" does not use the same attachment process as a course or project site. There are two items to review and address:

      1. Non-standard "Add" process to upload files, create folders, etc. (A bulleted list appears where the word "Add" is clickable via mouse but a triangle icon is not clickable.)
      2. The "Add" feature is not keyboard accessible (cannot tab to the selection).

      STEPS TO REPLICATE

      1. Go to Trunk (https://trunk-mysql.nightly.sakaiproject.org/)
      2. Log in as the "admin" account
      3. Go to "Administrative Workspace"
      4. Click "Announcements"
      5. Click "Add"
      6. Scroll down and click "Add Attachments"
      7. The non-standard attachments page displays with a view of the Administrative Workspace Resources
      8. "Tab" on the page and attempt to interact with the "Add" link (I have not been successful using Chrome 75.0.3770.100 for Windows 10). I can click the link with my mouse which displays a bulleted list of actions.

      PROPOSAL

      Implement the standard "Actions" drop-down menu from Resources that is keyboard accessible and consistent with other tools.  Or implement the standard "Add Attachments" process, if appropriate.  (My instinct says that since it interfaces with the Admin Resources the normal process from a course or project site may not be feasible.)

      NOTE: I am not sure how far back this issue goes.  I can replicate in Sakai 12 but I have not tested for Sakai 11 or earlier.
