AutoSave for Quizzes, Oral Recordings, and Question Banks

AutoSave for Quizzes, Oral Recordings, and Question Banks

(1)

With quizzes and question banks are being used more and more so having auto save would be a great feature.  It would allow us to work and not worry about getting kicked out or hitting the wrong button as we work causing us to lose all the work we just did.  It takes precious time to set up quizzes from typing in questions, recording questions, and creating question banks.  Auto save would be a nice feature for when the unexpected happens.  We would be able to restore the work we had just done and continue to work without having to start form the beginning.

Hi  @leslie_gardner 

The feature ideas process is currently in a holding stage; please refer to Changes Coming to Canvas Community Feature Ideas. While we're waiting, I'd like to call your attention to a similar idea that is currently open for voting that might prove helpful:

 @leslie_gardner , thank you for your idea! It will open for voting on March 1, 2017 as part of the relaunch of feature idea voting. Find out more about the changes we made in Changes are here: New feature idea processes went live Friday! (2/24/17).

And while your idea relates specifically to quiz creation, you might be interested in adding feedback to this related idea-- https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/1300?sr=search&searchId=2170225d-bbcd-4c27-bc41-b32f6f8c2ae9&s...‌--which is still open for voting and is in the In Development stage.

This would save so much time. As a teacher, it would help tremendously and would make me more likely to use this feature more in Canvas.

An autosave feature on just about everything in Canvas would be great.

Thank you everyone for contributing to this idea! We acknowledge that this has been a long-standing thread in the Community, but because Intructure’s product teams are no longer developing new functionality for Classic Quizzes, which is scheduled to be deprecated 2024, we are archiving this idea. We hope that you continue to participate in the Community’s Idea Process!

The resources in the New Quizzes User Group should help you get started with using New Quizzes in your courses. If you don't see the ability to enable New Quizzes in the settings area of one of your courses, please reach out to your local Canvas admin for information about its availability at your school.
