Canvas Updates for Saturday, 3/31

In this production release (March 31), users with the manage Learning Outcomes permission can import outcomes into an account or a course using a CSV file. Outcome edits can be updated in outcomes for both assessed and unassessed rubrics. The Reports page includes the Outcome Export report, and additional outcomes data is included in the Outcome Reports and Student Competency reports.

In DocViewer, any user can add a comment to an annotation, and individual comments include an icon that displays the type and color of the associated annotation. The Free Draw annotation supports varied stroke widths.
For courses using the New Gradebook, filters are cleared automatically when hidden by a user. Grading scheme and complete/incomplete assignment types include a grade entry menu, and grades are validated against the assignment grading scheme. The Grade Detail Tray displays a warning icon for assignments that are not calculated as part of the final grade.

Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) will transition from a fully supported browser to a functionally supported browser.
