Every once in a while there will be a need to disable, undo, or remove something in Canvas. But it's not whether or not these modification are possible. Rather, it's more fascinating to learn of the reasons for the changes and the possible solutions that arise from the resulting community feedback.
Disable or Enable?
Sometimes it's not about removing a feature or hiding it. Sometimes a feature is awesome, but we simply want to have a bit more granularity over its functionality. Right? Ada Chung asks about Disabling Feature Options Tab in the Canvas Admins group. Joshua Swink wondered if we can/should disable test instance reset. Do you have any features you would like to disable or enable at the course or account level?
Undo or Redo?
We all make mistakes in Canvas (unintentionally, of course) and need to undo it. Here are some of the recent 'oopsies' posted in the Q & A space. Share your feedback or read the solutions presented:
- how to undelete / restore comments on Discussion?
- how to undo a highlight
- I imported the wrong course. Can this be undone?
- Using Undelete for student assignment
