In this production release (August 5), the submission details page, student Grades page, and SpeedGrader display labels for missing submissions.

For admins who use CSV files with student information systems, the SIS import file supports a diffing threshold and the change_SIS_ID CSV data format. 

Production release notes also include fixed bugs.

InstructureCon 0017 Product Announcements

 

 

InstructureCon 0017 saw an exciting line up of Product announcements, with some features ready for release, and others preparing for release in the near future. We thought it might be difficult to remember every exciting announcement, so we created this summary and resource post for you. Use the table of contents below to quickly navigate.

 

InstCon0017 Product Announcements 

 

"There has been a lot of discussion about the need to Adjust all assignment and quiz dates on a single page. I created a Google Spreadsheet to attempt to address this feature request, but the announcement and instructions got lost among the almost 100 comments. This document is an attempt to pull the relevant information into one location so it's easier to find." - James Jones
