On Monday, 11/6/2017, I added an assignment to the Commons in Canvas. For whatever reason, the assignment still says pending(2 days later), which doesn’t allow me to add it to my other sections.
Wendy, that's not expected behavior. Per the documentation (How do I share a resource to Commons?), a resource should only take up to 30 minutes to appear in Commons. Have you submitted a support ticket to report this (How do I get help with Canvas as an instructor?)?
