Auto-Save During Quiz Creation.

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

To my knowledge, when I was creating a quiz I had gotten kicked out for whatever reason (lost wifi connection, computer goes to sleep, etc) and the quiz didn't auto-save like it does for the students who take the quiz. It would be nice, assuming it isn't too difficult, if this was a feature for creating quizzes!

Could you please specify what you are asking and provide us with more detail? Canvas does not have a feature that permits quiz creation by students. When creating a quiz as an instructor, you do have to save your work before exiting the quiz creation tool. Is this what you are trying to do?

You can learn more about creating quizzes @How do I create a Quiz with individual Questions?

Waiting to hear from you,

Yes that is what I was referring to, having to save the quiz and its changes when something unexpected could happen, just an idea with what happened to us! We have instructor accounts and we're creating a quiz for our "class" when my partner for some reason exited the quiz and lost her work.

Thank you for the additional information, Brendan.

It sounds like you are looking for an 'auto-save' feature during quiz creation.

Would you mind editing your idea so that the title and description are more specific?

Thanks.

Yes, thank you for the additional information!

One of the things I love about Google Drive is auto-save, and I think every site needs one since I tend to have the memory of a banana slug and am always forgetting to save.

I will support this idea after you have had a chance to update it.
