Canvas Release Notes January 2022
Course Navigation Menu State
- The expanded or collapsed state of the Course Navigation Menu persists throughout all Canvas courses.
- The menu state is applied on a per-user basis and retained for all courses where the user is enrolled.
Missing Status Removal
- When a grade is entered manually for a missing submission, the missing status is removed.
- When a submission is missing it is indicated with a red color in the assignment column of the gradebook. Previously this would persist even after a manual grade had been entered. This update will align the gradebook color with an on-time submission.
- Removing the entered grade does not replace the missing label.
Unposted Comment Warning
- When a grader creates a text, media, or audio comment and tries to advance to the next student or a previous student for the assignment, the grader is notified that the comment has been created but not posted.
- This warning can be disabled for the assignment by selecting the do not show again checkbox when the warning appears.
