Is there any way to prevent instructors from moving assignments in the assignments page? We use weighted categories and it is very easy to accidentally move the assignments around which messes up the student's grades.
Hi Brianna. I am not sure if this is helpful, but have you checked to see if using blueprint courses will lock assignment groups, Canvas Release: Blueprint Courses? We haven't begun using blueprint courses at my institution so I am less familiar with this functionality, but the document does discuss locking content. I would be a little surprised if the assignment groups were locked, considering that modules are not at this point based on an existing feature idea (Blueprint: Make Modules lockable). I checked and I may have missed something but didn't see a feature idea that has been created discussing locking blueprint courses but it may be that a feature idea related to this functionality would be popular. If you are not familiar with the feature idea process these documents may help: How does the feature idea process work in the Canvas Community? and How do I create a new feature idea in the Canvas Community?
I did find an existing idea for the general ability to lock assignment groups, Lock Assignment Groups (you may need to request access to archived ideas to view this). The idea did not get many votes that go around, but previous ideas can be re-proposed. Sometimes ideas that did get many votes one time get good traction another. I can see the value in being able to lock groups for the reason you mentioned.
I hope this helps and best wishes!
