A few months ago we were looking for feedback on how to improve the workflows around importing user data into Portfolium. I'm pleased to announce we've shipped those features and made improvements to how you can handle user data imports through scheduling, better tools for data management as well as a new streamlined interface to gain insights on the progress during an import.

Hello,

I am the engineer responsible for, depending on your experience, the enhancement of how math equations are displayed in canvas or the string of horrific errors that rendered math quizzes unreadable. If you're in the latter camp, I am truly sorry. This turned out to have complexities I did not envision. I owe you a beer or a coffee.

While investigating why math is sometimes garbled I stumbled on a surprising pattern for how users are creating equations in their content and wanted to say a couple things about how to make it better.

2021-04-08 Update: We've enabled this change to beta instances per the 2021-04-14 Canvas Deploy Notes to expose those who are interested with the opportunity to play and see how this would work.  Our current plan is to deploy the change end of April or early May.  Please continue to add your comments below.

2021-04-17 Update: Will be addressed as a bug fix and released in the 2021-04-28 Canvas Deploy.

2021-04-28 Update: Confirming released in the 2021-04-28 Canvas Deploy

In March we made a change in New Quizzes, so that Assignment Edit page is always the first page. Previous behavior was that the Assignment Edit page was the first page only on initial New Quiz creation. 

I’m looking for your help to evaluate those trade offs between early communication and immediately solving user pain.

Earlier today, one of the subsystems that Canvas relies on for service failed, causing a Canvas outage. The outage could have impacted up to 75% of our customers in North and South America if they were trying to access Canvas between 6:48 am and 8:27 am MT. Additionally, on March 3, Canvas users experienced an outage in the afternoon that lasted for 45 minutes due to a Canvas code update that overwhelmed a shared service. We know you expect more of us; we expect more of ourselves. And so we owe you an apology.
