Below is a summary of the top 12 priorities that "Khaki" identified.  Priorities 13-15 (highlighted in gray) may or may not become part of the final prioritized list.  The prioritization of the items in gray will depend on the final scoping and sprint total. (One sprint loosely defined is 2 engineers working 40 hours a week for three weeks)

1. Admin Role Granular Permissions I & II

Estimated Sprints: 6 

I. As and admin, I need to be able to easily understand how permissions interact, so that I can grant the appropriate permissions for my users.

II. As an admin, I must be able to grant permissions for certain tasks independent of whether a user has other permissions set.

2. Canvas Content Duplication

As an instructor, I want to be able to copy or replicate any content item (assignment, page, discussion, etc.) in my course with one click, preferably from Modules.

3. Student Crocodoc Feedback View

Estimated Sprints: 4

As a student, finding annotated feedback from my instructor is difficult. I have to view the submission details from the assignment or Grades page, then click a tiny link called View Feedback. The annotated document displays in a tiny window that is difficult to navigate, and downloading the document to review my instructor's comments is difficult as well, since annotations don't show up unless I know how to enable comments in the Print screen.

4. Advanced Reports

Estimated Sprints: 20

As an admin or instructor, I would like to be able to get more reports from Canvas. Canvas Data is awesome, but it requires advanced knowledge that I do not have and/or additional tools that I cannot afford.

5. Large Course: Sections/Groups

Estimated Sprints: 8

As an instructor, I need different capabilities for creating and managing sections and groups for large courses.

6. Page View Mobile Activity

Estimated Sprints: 4

As an instructor, I would like to be able to tell if my students are participating in my course through a mobile device.

7. Rich Content Editor: File/Image Drag & Drop

Estimated Sprints: 6

As a student or instructor, I want to drag and drop files and images from my desktop into the Rich Content Editor (such as in a discussion reply, or assignments) instead of having to upload first. (*image upload is not possible in discussion replies).

8. Canvas Course Global Search

Estimated Sprints: 12

As a student or instructor, I would like to have a global search function in Canvas that would allow me to search for files and content across all my courses.

9. Commons: Preview Activities and Content

Estimated Sprints: 12

As an instructor or designer, I want to see what a Commons activity or object looks like before I import it into my course so I can avoid wasting time importing, evaluating, and deleting.

10. Mobile: Camera Access for Embedded Images

Estimated Sprints: 3

As a student, I have access to my camera to record a video in the Rich Content Editor, but do not have the same ability to take a picture and embed it directly.

11. Course Archive Process

Estimated Sprints: 2

As an admin, I need to manage the myriad of courses in my account and archive ones that are no longer being used.
