Canvas Catalog Release Notes (2015-10-28)

In this Catalog release, Catalog adds support for new languages. Other small changes have been made to improve the enrollment user experience, truncation formatting, and revenue ordering.

Canvas Catalog is an all-in-one learning solution that integrates with the Canvas LMS as a course registration system, payment gateway, and learning platform. Learn more about Canvas Catalog.

  Updated Features




In addition to English, Spanish, and Chinese, the Catalog language drop-down menu supports multiple languages. Admins can change the language for their catalog in the admin section.



Disabled User Registration

When user registration is disabled, students click the Enroll button for a listing, log in with Canvas, and then redirect back to the enrollment page. Previously after the student logged in, the page would direct back to the product page and the student would have to click the Enroll button again. By default all accounts are set to enable registration; contact your Customer Success Manager if you are interested in disabling user registration for your institution.

  Other Updates



Long Listing Titles and Teasers

When a course or program includes a long listing title, the listing title is truncated with an ellipses. Additionally, teaser text that is longer than shown in the listing window is also truncated in the catalog listing page and Student Dashboard In-Progress tab. The full text for any truncated content can be viewed by hovering over the content.


Revenue Order

Revenue report enrollments are generally listed in the order they were created. However, Catalog has been updated to always show enrollments starting with the most recent transaction.

User Menu

User Menu Formatting

The User Menu drop-down menu has been adjusted to accommodate varied lengths of student names. Long names are truncated appropriately to align with the menu width.
