The idea to allow CANVAS quiz answers to “contain” keywords failed with only 33 of 100 needed votes. I have created a new idea to fully support regular expressions. Please login and vote, as well as pass it on:




If you have trouble logging in to Canvas Communities (it tries to use a cookie or some sort of stored information), just go to your address bar and delete everything after https://sso.canvaslms.com/SAML2/Login?.

It works every time.
