New Quiz Settings, Can it be Streamlined?

Good morning! I am trying to work with New Quiz Assignments and have a lot of trouble between editing settings in the quiz, or in the assignment. During this time of our marking period, I'm spending the bulk of my time either reopening an assignment for a student (changing the due dates) or giving a student a new attempt in the assignment. It is a little frustrating that they are two different locations.


I'm not sure if I am using the feature correctly, but why are there two different locations to edit settings? I can either choose "edit" from the right hand menu, within the list of quizzes. Or, I can visit the "settings" tab after clicking on a specific quiz. Is there a way that that can be streamlined? It seems like I can constantly going to the wrong option, and it is especially clunky because the "return" button brings me back to an entirely new location.


I've also noticed that there are two different locations for changing the amount of attempts, and they can even conflict with each other.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

@ryan_corris Sorry to "@" you, but I appreciated you responding to the other message, and I think I'm using these boards wrong.

It seems like no one has seen this question. Did I post this in the wrong location?

Thanks, and sorry again!

No problem @spudicmx. I am still trying to get used to the new version of the Community too.  As you can tell there are various locations where you can post comments and all of them probably have lightly if not very different audiences.  If you are just looking for anyone who wants to reply, people may see your question but not have an answer and do not reply.  If you are looking for someone specific to answer your question, you might want to find a group in the Community that has more of a focus for the topic you are looking for.  It looks like your question might not be for users, but to see if Canvas can be changed to make a workflow different.  If this is an idea you think Canvas should implement, you can suggest it by going to Product > Roadmap > Idea Conversations
