Prod vs Test, and Best Practices for Testing Changes

Hi Folks.


We're currently piloting Canvas for our institution. Since Prod overwrites Test every three weeks, we found that a challenge is testing our settings and configurations in the test environment, and then our progress getting overwritten by untouched production data.

As an institution we are used to testing settings and configurations in a test environment (not necessarily on a three week schedule), and after success is found, we push those settings to Prod. 

I'm curious if any other admin have similar experiences, and If so, how did you adapt? 

What were your practices for implementation given the three week overwrite cycle?


Thanks!Canvas Admins
