New Quizzes with no timer show students' attempt durations as '00:00'

Instructional designer here. A lecturer came to me recently saying that on the Moderate page for a recent quiz they ran, which was made in New Quizzes and did not have a timer, all the students' attempt durations are coming up as '00:00'. They say that quizzes with this set up used to show an actual attempt duration. 

I've tested this a few different times since and have gotten different results on different days, usually it shows attempts as '00:00' but occasionally they have shown an actual duration. As of today, I'm seeing attempt durations as '00:00'.

I have been onto Canvas Support twice regarding this, the first time they said it was an issue with New Quizzes that had since been resolved, and the second time, when I saw the issue was still occurring, they said they would need to submit it internally for further review, so I am now waiting on an update from them in that regard.

I am making this post just to check if anyone else in the community has experienced this particular issue with New Quizzes recently?

Yes, I've been having the same problem and just submitted a ticket about it. And yes - untimed New Quizzes DID used to show a duration. We'll see what they say!
