Canvas Production Releases

In this production release (December 9), the Analytics link has been moved to the Account Navigation Menu for admins. In courses, assignment group settings include an option to move all assignments to another assignment group, and instructors can view a label for inactive enrollments in groups.


For instructors using the New Gradebook, the Grade Detail Tray indicates concluded student enrollments when concluded enrollments are visible.


Canvas customers with Turnitin, Unicheck, Urkund, or Vericite accounts can use a new plagiarism framework in their courses.


Small design updates have been made in the Canvas interface for Collaborations, the Dashboard, and the Rich Content Editor, and Italian is a supported language in Canvas. Other updates have also been made to various APIs and other integration documentation.


Production release notes also include fixed bugs.


Features are subject to change throughout the release based on user feedback and testing. Please follow the release notes for the latest information.

We received a cryptic message from faculty requesting urgent Canvas Resources hours before the semester started. Our mission: Provide readily accessible course templates and tools across seven campuses. Our agents will share how we developed a user-centered, scalable solution through Canvas Commons to inspire engaging Canvas experiences.
