The most recent updates to Canvas were rolled out on April 22nd. Changes included:
To switch between Recent Activity and Course Cards, the Dashboard toggle has been updated to a settings drop-down menu. This change helps clarify Dashboard customization and aligns design consistency throughout Canvas.
- Calendar – Multiple Section Enrollments and Scheduler Appointments:
If a user has multiple section enrollments in a course, and one enrollment is removed, existing Scheduler appointments are not removed unless no other section enrollments exist for the user. Explanation: When a user had multiple section enrollments in a single course, and one of those section enrollments was deleted, the enrollment would also remove existing Scheduler appointments. Canvas code has been updated to retain existing Scheduler appointments unless no other section enrollments exist for the user.
- Discussions – Deleted Discussion Entries:
The Discussions Search field does not display deleted discussion entries. Explanation: If a post had been deleted in a discussion and a user searched for an unknown author, the discussion displayed the deleted post. Canvas code has been updated to ignore deleted discussions in the user search.
