Canvas Update – March 30, 2019

Filed in Canvas, updates by on March 27, 2019

Every 3 weeks, Canvas releases new features, updates to existing features, and bug fixes to our platform.

In this Canvas release (March 30), the beta label has been removed from the New Gradebook in addition to other feature options in Canvas. In Notifications, SMS notifications have been shortened to distribute one message about the related content, and instructors can enable a notification to be notified of link errors in their courses.

As other updates, Slovenian has been added as a supported language in Canvas. The Submissions – View and Make Comments permission has been removed from Canvas. And as part of course groups, the group membership edit message has been reworded for functionality clarity.

Feature Options

  • For institutions using the New Gradebook, the Final Grade Override column retains all percentages entered for grade overrides. Additionally, content is included in SIS syncs.

External Tools (LTI)

  • For institutions using Commons, admins who have enabled a branding image for approved content can reset the custom branding image back to the default approved content icon. Additionally, the Back button includes more context and directs the user to the previously visited page or back to the Search page.
  • For institutions using Quizzes.Next, tags can be added to item bank items, and item banks can be searched and filtered by tags or item type.

Release notes also include API updates and fixed bugs.
