When beta release notes are published, does anyone have a checklist of tasks they complete to prepare for the release to production?  We’ve created a draft list (below).  We are new to Canvas and would welcome your feedback or suggestions.

  • View beta release notes
  • Send URL with release notes to IT and Academic Affairs for review
  • Identify test
  • Login to beta to view enhancements
  • Perform testing in beta environment [suggestions for tasks?]
  • Review beta release notes comments in community site
  • Identify status for feature flags
  • Determine which enhancements will need communication to students and faculty
  • Review production release notes
  • Send/post communications

Thank you.
