Check in on Checkpoints



Hello Instructure Community,

We're excited to share an important update regarding the release of our eagerly awaited feature, Discussion Checkpoints. Your enthusiasm for this addition has been incredibly motivating, and we sincerely appreciate your continued patience as we navigate the development process.

As you know, the journey to bring checkpointed discussions to life has been both exciting and complex. Checkpointed discussions require modifications in a variety of locations throughout Canvas requiring coordination across multiple teams. As development progressed, it was clear that we needed to modify the initial implementation to handle unexpected edge cases to allow for a better overall user experience. Our goal is to ensure the feature we ship meets your needs and doesn’t introduce new pain points.

Due to these complexities, we've made the tough decision to delay the release of Discussion Checkpoints by one more quarter. We now anticipate launching this feature at the end of Q3 2024. While we understand this news may be disappointing, we are confident that this additional time will allow us to provide a more polished and user-friendly experience.

We are committed to keeping you informed throughout this process. As soon as we make further progress, we will share another update along with some preview videos to give you a glimpse of the new feature.

Thank you once again for your patience and ongoing support. The public roadmap will be updated soon to reflect this delay.
