iOS - Student | Enrolments that are soft-concluded via term cause groups to appear

Canvas white logo

This behavior has been resolved and deployed to the production environment as of 3/16/22.



When a users enrollment is concluded via term dates, the group is still accessible to the student.

Happens in iOS Student 6.14.1

Expected Behavior

Instead, it should not show groups on the dashboard of the app if the course it's in has been concluded for the user's role type in the course. OR there should be an indicator that the group cannot be accessed which we can see in the web.


No workaround exists at this time.

Steps to Reproduce


Prerequisites: Create a term with an end date in the past just for student role(referred to as past term)

  1. Create a course and add a student to it and place them inside of a group in the course

  2. Publish this course and navigate to the settings page

  3. Make sure the "Restrict students from viewing course after term end date" option, is not selected.

  4. Log into the app, and you will see that the group appears. (Group will show and then disappear, refresh the page, and it will be visible.)
