Create Options for Muting & Un-muting

Create Options for Muting & Un-muting

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

Whether I am setting up a Canvas course or closing one out at the end of the term, I find a need to be able to Mute or Un-mute ALL assignments without having to do one at a time.  With five courses, this gets very time consuming.  I believe the drop-down menu should give options to mute or un-mute ALL or SELECT (individual) assignments.  I hope this flies!!

Hi  @cynthiabishop 

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 similar ideas that are currently open for voting that you might find meet your needs and can support.

  • - not really what you are looking for, but you may still want to check it out.
  • - also not really what you are looking for, but you may still want to check it out.

Here is a recently archived idea that seems to fit what you are seeking perfectly:

Once the new process is unveiled, the Community Team will evaluate your submission and decide whether to move it forward for the next voting period.

This is a good idea.  I sometimes was to play around with a participation grade to see if raising or lowering it has a significant effect on the student's final grade.  When doing the final grading students get very interested and notice any little change so I would rather the back end be opaque to them until the instructor has finalized the grades.

As I mute assignments for the upcoming semester . . . one assignment at a time, three clicks per assignment . . . I long for a way to "mute all" at once. Or maybe "select all," then mute/unmute the assignments I've selected. My mouse button fingers are getting tired!
