       In Canvas, we are noticing a lack of sufficient information in the warning messages. Specifically, with the delete warning message when it asks users if they want to delete a group:

    • It does not warn users if the group they’re deleting has graded discussion work associated, the discussion postings will also be deleted. (below is a picture of the warning message when an instructor attempts to delete a group)

    For this reason, we would like to submit an enhancement request for the deletion of a group warning messages:

    • Provide more information in the warning message (i.e. name of which group you are about to delete)
    • List potential consequences if deleted (i.e. unable to recover)
    • The warning message should provide enough details so the user understands the issue and take the next steps to resolve it (for example similar to the screen shot below that appears when you attempt to delete a quiz that a student has already taken)
