    In providing feedback to students in the Assignment Comments area of an assignment, I often provide URLs to students.  Currently, the comments area is text only so students cannot click on the URL to go to the website.  Instead, they need to manually copy and paste the URL to make it work.  It would be nice to have some HTML functionality here.

    We will consider this for a future update. The team is currently focusing on the Canvas Studio: Modern Quizzing Engine. We will look for enhance this functionality for assignments in the future.
