Canvas Deploy: Home link, Files Download Link, Missing Label (April 28, 2021)

The April 28, 2021 Canvas Deploy addresses the following features and bug fixes: 

  • Course Navigation Home Link: This option allows instructors to add a Course Link to Home anywhere the Rich Content Editor is supported. 
  • Files Download Links: Links to email addresses and pages with the word files in the title will no longer improperly display the download link inside the Rich Content Editor. 
  • Missing Label and Graded Submissions: When an online submission assignment is not submitted by the due date, the Missing label will now display in SpeedGrader, regardless of whether it has been graded. 

The following features are included in this update but not currently applicable to the ISU environment: 

  • Save and Build Buttons: The New Quiz creation page includes both a Save button and a Build button. 
  • Assignment Enhancements and HTML Tags: When a course has enabled assignment enhancements, HTML tagging code styles added to assignment descriptions are now properly retained in student view.
