    I've heard from several faculty who say when they stumble on the Feature Options tab under course settings they're confused about what the different optional features really do. The New Gradebook and Quizzes.Next are great examples. The options include brief descriptions, but these aren't very helpful. It'd be great if the descriptions also included links to Canvas's documentation that explain the feature in detail. For example, the Quizzes.Next description could link to Quizzes.Next Feature Comparison.

     

    We do our best to communicate about these different feature options, but for faculty who just stumble on this in the course settings, it'd be really helpful to have links they can follow to get the answers to their questions directly.
