Canvas deploys contain code changes that are intended to fix bugs, improve performance, and prepare for new features, but they do not affect customer workflows. These deploys take place every two weeks and can be tested in the beta environment before the production deploy date indicated in the title of this document. Intended changes in workflow are noted in the Canvas Release Notes published monthly.
Deploy notes may include notable fixed bugs (as added to the Canvas Known Issues list) and additional updates that do not affect user functionality.

Affected User Roles
When an observer views the Card View Dashboard, the name of the course card includes the name of the student being observed. If the observer is observing multiple students, the card displays multiple names. If more names exist than can be displayed, the names truncate with an ellipses.
