Mute assignment as a option at assignment creation

Mute assignment as a option at assignment creation

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas
Please can we have this as it could save a lot of headache for teachers 

 

When you create an assignment can we have it to either

 

  1. Automatically set the assignment to be muted at point of creation
  2. Having muting an assignment as option in the creation list

 

It is too easy to forget to Mute an assignment and there are no queues at creation.

The Radar idea stage has been removed from the Feature Idea Process.  You can read more about why in the blog post Adaptation: Feature Idea Process Changes.

 

This change will only impact the stage sort of this idea and will not change how it is voted on or how it is considered during prioritization activities.  This change will streamline the list of ideas 'open for voting', making it easier for you to see the true top voted ideas in one sort, here.

Hello, just wanted to voice my continued annoyance that this feature hasn't been developed. I've just had (yet another) assignment muting issue, in this case a student received their grades/marks as they were entered....at 1 in the morning, no less. Assignments should be muted by default and released when all assignments have been graded/marked. This is a no-brainer improvement that Canvas needs to make.

The course development process could be made much easier for instructors if there were an option to Mute and Un-Mute All graded assessments within that course. They could develop the course, adding assignments, quizzes, discussions etc. and then click a single button to Mute all of the graded assessments instead of having to do them one by one. On the flip side, if a instructor has a lot of assessments (weekly readings with weekly assignments, discussions and quizzes pertaining to the readings, plus exams) it would make it very easy at the end of the semester / term to click a button to Un-Mute All Assessments and feel confident knowing that they could not have missed one of them on accident.
