Hi  @amotycka   This document does a good job of explaining the mute feature, How do I mute or unmute an assignment in the Gradebook? As mentioned in the introduction:

"By default, Canvas allows students to see assignment grades as soon as the instructor has graded the assignment. In some cases, instructors may wish to hold student grades until all assignments have been graded, and then release grades to all students at the same time. To hide student grades temporarily, an instructor can choose to mark an assignment as muted. Students can still see and submit a muted assignment. Only the grade will be hidden. You can also mute assignments in SpeedGrader.

A muted assignment will not send out grade change notifications or any new instructor comments until the assignment is unmuted. A muted assignment displays a Mute icon on the student grades page so students know the assignment is muted. Students will be unable to view their grades, including grade and score changes, submission comments, Canvas DocViewer comments, and curved assignments for the assignment until the assignment is unmuted. In Gradebook exports and reports, muted grades are part of unposted grades."

I hope this helps and best wishes!
