Canvas updated over the weekend, but very few of the changes made in this update affect our institution. The one you might note is a change to the layout of the Gradebook navigation buttons, explained below. As always, the production notes also include other Canvas updates, platform integrations, and fixed bugs.

Updated Features

Gradebook Toolbar

The Gradebook toolbar includes a revised design to help instructors manage their Gradebook data more easily. No functionality has been affected by this change, but this is the first of several small upgrades to create a more intuitive interface in the Gradebook.

The Settings menu and sections sorting menu are located on the right side of the Gradebook, and the import and export features have been removed from the Settings menu and replaced as standalone buttons.
