Require group members to be in the same section option is ignored during group set creation

Require group members to be in the same section option is ignored during group set creation

Canvas white logo

This behavior has been resolved and deployed to the production environment as of 7/12/22.

 
Description


When automatically assigning students to groups during a group set creation, the option “Require group members to be in the same section” is ignored if enabled.

Expected Behavior

 

Instead group membership distribution should be restricted to same-section enrollments

 

Workaround

 

 

 

Steps to Reproduce

 

Enroll a handful of students in a course split between two sections (the more, the higher chance of seeing memberships cross sections)

Create a group set and select either auto-assign option

Enable “Require group members to be in the same section”

Click Save and see the resulting group memberships did not respect same-section restrictions
