Look What I Found in Beta!

When I found this I jumped for joy! Can't wait for the release notes today! It only works for assignments and pages but I assume we will get it for other content items as well.

That's nifty!  It should save me a few minutes of time when I am building courses for instructors so I no longer have to copy/paste HTML code from an existing page to a new page and then edit the new page.  #happypanda#happypandadance

Woo hoo!

I do believe this is the first feature result from the 2017 Project Khaki!

Awesome!

It's true! Look at the information here! Assignment Duplication and Pages Duplication are officially part of the https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-11660-canvas-beta-release-notes-2017-07-05?sr=search&search...‌. If anyone wants to discuss the possibilities (or excitement!), feel free to jump into the Beta Release Notes (2017-07-03) Collaborative ChatSmiley Happy

This will indeed be helpful and a great timesaver for faculty.  Thanks for pointing it out, snugent‌!

One suggestion while this is still under development... When one clicks on the gear and chooses "Delete," can the popup notice include the name of the assignment to be deleted?  This is for clarity and to double-check that the correct assignment is being deleted.  Currently, it reads, "Are you sure you want to delete this assignment?"   I'm suggesting that it read,"Are you sure you want to delete the assignment: <NAME OF ASSIGNMENT>?"

This is also present in the People area when removing a student from a course... It would be extremely useful to have the popup notice read, "Are you sure you want to remove <STUDENT NAME> from the course?" for the same reasons.

Looking forward to debuting the Duplicate feature!

Thanks!

mnieckoski, I agree wholeheartedly with you on this, but a better and more visible place to add this would be the beta release notes - Canvas Beta Release Notes (2017-07-05). Canvas employees monitor and respond to that forum and you'd be more likely to have someone take note of your feedback there.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

I actually was looking for a place to send it to the eyes of Canvas, but didn’t know where short of starting a feature request.

I’ve posted it to the Release notes page.

Thanks again!

Excellent!
