The Grade Change Activity log supports multi-parameter search fields.
This change allows for more granular search functionality. Previously the search results only returned results from the first search field.
Affected User Roles
In the Logging tab, the Grade Change Activity log supports multi-parameter search. Admins can search by grader, student, course ID, and assignment ID. The log displays results for all entered search fields.
Note: For Canvas Open Source users, multi-parameter search is only supported for accounts using ActiveRecord auditors. Otherwise, only search results based on the first criterion will continue to be returned.
Newly recorded media and uploaded media via the Upload/Record Media link is stored in the Course, Groups, or User Files folder, respectively.
This change ensures users can reuse media uploaded or recorded as media content. Previously, newly recorded and uploaded media could not be repurposed without being exported as part of course content.
Affected User Roles
When users record media or upload media using the Upload/Record Media link, the media file is stored in the Files folder for the media location (course or group). For students who record or upload media for an assignment submission, the media file is stored in the User Files folder.
These media files can be downloaded and shared like all other files in the Files page. Media files default to an unpublished state.
This change does not affect institutions who are using their own media tool and have disabled the Upload/Record Media link.
This change only applies to media files created or uploaded after November 21.
This change to newly recorded or uploaded media via the Upload/Record Media link does not affect Canvas file quotas. However, media files uploaded via any other method (such as the Upload Files link) do affect the course, group, or user files quota, respectively. To learn more about available options for using media files in Canvas, view the Canvas Media Comparison PDF.
