Can I keep a Module items list closed?

Jump to solution

I keep "closing" this Module list, but it defaults back to "open" when I navigate away and come back to Modules.  Is there a way to get it to "stay closed" until I click to open it again? I don't want to lock it. I just want to get it out of my way on the page. Thanks!

Module list with triangle _ down arrow open.

Hi whitney.clay@westvalley.edu - Unfortunately not.

whitney.clay@westvalley.edu‌ you can also check out this blog post regarding adding custom CSS and Javascript to your environment to make this the default view. https://community.canvaslms.com/groups/canvas-developers/blog/2018/07/05/collapse-expand-modules

While the code snippets in that blog post may be fine for some schools, I believe that code would be applied in the global CSS and JavaScript areas of a school's Canvas account...which means that it would apply for every single course in that school's Canvas environment.  Some instructors may not want their modules collapsed by default.  So, I would think that local Canvas admins would want to discuss this and any possible ramifications before implementing in their own Canvas environment.

Thank you for the blog link, Gretta. I can't wait to test it out!
