Linking course documents/images in the RCE should open root directories, NOT a list of all files

0 Kudos

The "Course Documents/Images/Media" buttons–attach image, attach media, & attach document buttons from the rich content editor (RCE)attach image, attach media, & attach document buttons from the rich content editor (RCE) in the rich content editor (RCE) currently open a list of all document/image/media files, respectively.  The list (ordered by upload date, I believe) is not an effective way to search through course files. Instead, the buttons should open the root file directory so instructors can find the attachments they want without additional steps. Thanks.

Thanks for sharing this idea. You'll be happy to know that in the new Rich Content Editor (RCE), the user can switch from a flat list of all files to a display of the folder hierarchy by switching the view to All from Documents in the dropdown that displays after making the File|Course Document selection from RCE toolbar.  As this is existing functionality in the RCE, we've archived the idea.

@tommy_flynn we've also made another improvement to the sidebar to allow searching. See if this helps as well: Canvas Deploy Notes (2020-11-18) - Canvas Community
