Favorited homeroom course will not appear on dashboard if permission "Announcements - view" disabled

Favorited homeroom course will not appear on dashboard if permission "Announcements - view" disabled

Canvas white logo

This behavior is resolved in the 2021-09-15 deploy.

Known issues indicate notable behaviors that has been escalated to the Canvas engineering team. Known issues are not a guarantee for an immediate resolution. This document is for informational purposes only and does not replace the Support process. If you are encountering the behavior outlined in this document, please ensure you have submitted a Support case (per your institution's escalation process) so Canvas Support can adequately gauge the overall customer impact and prioritize appropriately.
Description


When a users role has permission "Announcements - view" disabled, it will cause their homeroom course not to appear on the dashboard when the course is starred. From what I can see, when you have a homeroom course enabled and favorited the disabled permission "Announcements - view," will block the course from showing because, on the dashboard, the homeroom course will have an announcement area.

Expected Behavior

 

The permission should not prevent the course from showing on the dashboard.

Workaround


Use the Classic Dashboard.

Steps to Reproduce

 

(This issue can be replicated with one course, but my example will be with two courses)

  1. In an account, have Canvas for Elementary.

  2. Create two roles (Use a teacher role, for example). Have permission "Announcements - view" enabled for role 1 and disabled for role 2.

  3. Enroll the teacher into course 1 using role 1 and enrol the teacher into course 2 using role 2.

  4. In course 1 go to the course settings and enable as homeroom course.

  5. Go to your dashboard and favourite course 1 and go back to the dashboard, and you will see that the course will show.

  6. Go to your dashboard and favourite course 2 and go back to the dashboard, and you will see that course 1 does not show.
