Add existing assignments and quizzes to the Assignment section?

Since +/- 2 days I haven't been able to add existing assignments and quizzes to the Assignment section. In the Assignment section, when I click the + button to add an assignment, I no longer see the option to choose an assignment or a quiz that I already created. Until recently (if I remember correctly) this option was available.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

j.m.p.a.langedijk@hr.nl, greetings! It sounds like the course has been put into a “read only” state (ex: Concluded). Is this a course that has already finished? If so, then I’d check with the Canvas Admins at your school to see if this is something that’s done automatically at the end of a course. Or, if you have inadvertently clicked or changed something to conclude your course (course end date or term dates in settings). They should also be able to help you manage this issue and get you back to creating.

Hi Kona, thanks for your reply. The courses (2 of them) haven't finished yet. They're still "live", we're able to upload and edit content. Also, as far as I can see, there are no end dates to these courses in settings.

That's super strange! I think I'd go ahead and submit this to Canvas Support to see if they can help figure out what the problem is.

j.m.p.a.langedijk@hr.nl, sorry if this seems obvious, but I just want to rule it out. When you state, "In the Assignment section, when I click the + button to add an assignment," + Assignment button at the top of the page launches the assignment creation interface. Clicking on the + button within an assignment group is how instructors add existing assignments and quizzes to the assignment group. So if you're doing the latter, and are not able to add existing graded items to the assignment group, and have already ruled out what Kona has hypothesized, then a support ticket would be in order.

Hi Stefanie, thank you for thinking along. I'm indeed referring to the + button within an assignment group. I suppose I'll contact the support center.
