New Gradebook Post Policy Icon Updates

Canvas has made a change to the icons and workflow in Post Policy. When users set a manual grade posting policy (manually release grades vs. automatic release) they’ll see the word Manual instead of an outlined eye (visibility icon). Users should now only see the eye icon (visibility icon) when entered grades need to be posted.
