Hide Individual Total Columns One At A Time


Right now, it is possible to hide ALL total columns (including the course total as well as individual assignment group totals), but if an instructor wants students to see their total for one assignment group but not another, the only workaround is to create a no-submission assignment to act as a placeholder column and copy those grades into that column. It would be beneficial to instructors if they had the ability to hide these individual total columns one by one rather than be required to hide them all or not hide any at all.

We have also had many faculty complain that the individual assignment group total columns take up unnecessary space in the gradebook, and can be easily confused for regular assignment columns if they have the same name (this is quite common in the case of individually weighted assignments, which must be given their own exclusive assignment group - which is an issue that deserves its own idea conversation), so it would also be beneficial for faculty to be able to either filter these columns out of their default grade view, or if total columns could be colored slightly differently so as to better distinguish them from regular assignment columns.
