Page Error for Assignment After Using Course Import Tool

Latest reply on Jan 6, 2016 by Learning Tech Services

I've seen this error a few times since I started using Canvas in July and I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced it or can tell me why it's occurring.


The assignment in the original course is set up with a submission type of external tool, but no external tool is selected. (This isn't my question, but I'm not sure how this is possible, so any explanation for this would be helpful as well.)



In the original course, if you select the assignment on the Assignment page, you're taken to the assignment details you typically see.



However, when the assignment is imported into another course, and you select the link to the assignment on the Assignment page, you get a Page Error message.


I've figured out how to get around this, but it would be much easier if I could instruct faculty on how to avoid this error to begin with.


I've already created a case for this issue, but the initial response I received back was not helpful.


Any help that can be provided would be greatly appreciated!
