Unhiding the "Mute Assignment" in Gradebook

Every assignment produces a column in the gradebook. Every column in the gradebook has in its header a hidden drop-down arrow, that presents a variety of options that control that assignment. Those options include:

  • Message Students Who...
  • Set Default Grade
  • Mute Assignment

Unfortunately, that drop-down arrow is hidden until you move your mouse and hover over the header for that assignment. That "hidden" state has caused problems for a good many of our new users.

Can anyone speak to the rationale behind this default "hidden" state? I would request to have that drop-down arrow made permanently visible? Why would Instructure want to hide such a useful (critical) tool?

Thx for any input.
