I need to get rid of LOTS of pages I uploaded from a publisher's cartridge. Any way to delete multiple pages at once? Otherwise, it's three clicks apiece, minimum.
Hey Tia, one trick I can think of would be to export the course (How do I export a Canvas course?) and then reset the course (How do I reset course content?) and then import in the export package and choose "Select Specific Content" (How do I import a Canvas course export package?). This will give you the option to either select none or only some of the pages. Depending on exactly how many pages you have and how many you need to get rid of this could be quicker than deleting each one manually.
Unfortunately the answer is no. I also did a quick search in the feature requests area to see if something like this currently exists and it does not. I know it is not much help now, but I would recommend creating a Feature Request for this functionality at Canvas Studio.
Cool trick, Adam!
Yeah . . . that would work. Clever, Adam!
Guess what happened when I first imported a coursepack and did NOT select items? Yep. Turns out there was a thing called "Syllabus" that the publisher had written. Poof! Mine was overwritten. No, I didn't have an updated backup 'cause I'd done a boatload of editing online. But the delightful, amazing Andrew Cole got my baby back.
The fact that this use case need a workaround is freaking ludicrous.
Is there still no better option than to have to export a course, and then import pages manually? Some courses have hundreds of pages to go through. Is it programmatically difficult to add check boxes next to the pages and delete multiples at a time?
This is a great idea and i personally would love to be able to have this as a feature.
