Today: Canvas Updates for Saturday, February 17th

In this production release (February 17), new assignments no longer include an option to display grades via GPA scale, and individually graded group assignments include clarified options for sending student and instructor comments. The New Gradebook (beta) allows instructors to enter grades without having to verify the display grade originally set for the assignment. And the People page includes a field to record the date a student last attended a course.

The Conversations Inbox and Compose Message windows display a new autocomplete menu to select courses and groups. Small interface changes have been made in the New Scheduler appointment group editing window, Modules page, and the Terms of Use pages. And various changes have been made to platform and integration tools including APIs and LTI tool visibility. This release also includes a number of bug fixes.
