*''Problem:'' Students may encounter an informational text when submitting a document that reads similar to "Box and Crocodoc are working together...sorry for any inconvenience." Your submission will be viewable in the Box viewer instead of Crocodoc, however, this appears to be transparent for users.
+
-
*''Workaround:'' The Box viewer is a fail-over reader for when documents are not able to be viewed within Crocodoc behind the scenes within Canvas.  Canvas support has suggested that the documents may eventually display in Crocodoc.

+
*''Problem:'' When using differentiated assignments, the due date shows as "Due Multiple Due Dates" instead of the due date for the specific student.  
-

</li><li><i>Workaround:</i> Go to Gradebook, filter by section (if there is more than one section associated with the course), then choose Speedgrader from the Gradebook. This should cut down on the number of students pulled into Speedgrader at once which should allow Speedgrader to load properly.

*''System:'' Canvas
*''System:'' Canvas
-
*''Problem:'' If a Student replies or posts to a group discussion from their mobile app, it will post to the main discussion instead of the group discussion.  
+
*''Problem:'' If a conference is created with a lengthy description, the "start" button disappears preventing anyone from joining the conference  The edit option is also gone so that the instructor cannot remove the description.  
-
*''Workaround:'' Posting to a group discussion should be done through the mobile browser or desktop/laptop computer until this issue is resolved.
+
*''Workaround:'' Keep the descriptions short (a few words) or don't use one at all.  If you already have the problem, use FF browser to edit the description.

===Imported File Structure Lost After Initial Deletion===
+
-
*''System:'' Canvas
+
-
*''Problem:'' When attempting to copy exported course files into a new course, the file/folder structure did not remain intact.  All file content imports correctly the first time it is imported; however, if the files are subsequently deleted from the course, and then re-imported, that is when they are loaded into an "Unfiled" folder.  This is because Canvas is essentially un-deleting the files that were previously imported, and that had been disassociated with their assigned folder when they were deleted.  Whenever files are un-deleted within the system, they are automatically added to an Unfiled folder to be manually moved to another folder if needed. While this is currently the expected behavior of the system, to move un-deleted files to an Unfiled folder, this can cause problems with Articulate files, HTML files, and related content that must be in the correct folder in order to work.
+
-
*''Workaround:'' Manually move the files back into the correct file/folders structure.

''System'': Canvas
-
*''Problem:'' In Grades, when utilizing 'Upload Scores' within large enrollment courses, after confirming your changes with 'Save Changes', the browser spins and then the page goes blank/white.  This appears to be the case in all popular browsers.
+
''Problem:'' If a course has differentiated assignments so that some students aren't required to complete some assignments, AND "mark ungraded as zero" is chose, AND the grades are exported, the gradebook then displays incorrectly to the instructor. After the export, the gradebook is counting those differentiated assignments that should not count against the student as zero, dropping the students' grades. NOTEStudents view of their grades is not affected.  
-
*''Workaround:'' Manually remove "gradebook_upload" from the URL to enter back into the course.  '''Note:''' Uploaded grades will continue to populate in a matter of minutes but you must refresh the page to see this occurring.

====Documentation Incorrect For Importing CSV Files====
+
-
*''System'': Canvas
+
-
*''Problem:'' When a user goes to upload a csv into the Gradebook and you select the help option "What should the CSV file look like?" on the upload pop-up, it takes you to an example image of what is required in the csv in order for it to be uploaded. The problem is this image is outdated. It contains a bubble right above "Section" that states "Optional, Ignored." This leads the user to believe that the section column is not required in the csv. But if they attempt to upload the csv without the section column they get an error and have to add that column.
+
-
*''Workaround:'' Section is not optional and must be included.  Required columns include: Student ID, SIS User ID, SIS Login ID, Section, Existing Assignment (###) OR A New Assignment (if you want to create a new one in the new file outside of Canvas).

*''Workaround:'' Move the file to a folder that is visible when added to a module. Another option would be to add the file directly to the module if the files are on the computer. You can do this by selecting the + icon for the module, change the drop down to file, and then choosing the first option which is "New File." This will give you the option to upload a file into the module.

-

+
-
*''Workaround:'' None currently.  It should be noted that the progress window will show any modules that aren't locked as "in progress" in the right-hand side of the window, but a student can complete all of a module's required items without moving into the next module, so the left-hand column will show "none in progress".

====Manually Assigning Students To Groups 'Unassigned Students' List Not Displaying Remainder====

The title of the list denotes there are additional students that are unassigned, i.e. "Unassigned Students (37)", but this list never repopulates on its own.

*''System'': Canvas

-
*''Problem:'' We've had reports within specific quizzes where certain videos play and certain videos do not play; when they do not play, you can generally see the player, but it shows zero seconds of recorded data.  This issue happens across Chrome, Firefox, IE(according to admin), Safari web browsers.
+
-
*''Workaround:'' Suggested to keep trying to refresh, restart browser, use incognito mode, try different browsers until you finally are able to access each one.

====Odd Point Values When Grading Quizzes====
+
-
*''System'': Canvas
+
-
*''Problem:'' When you have two question groups both pulling from the same question bank, but for different point values, this causes a situation where Canvas is giving the same question and getting confused with different results.
+
-
*''Workaround:'' Discontinue administration of this quiz. Make a new quiz and if you really need to grab from the same pool of questions, make a second bank (that is a copy) so that each group can pull from different banks.

*''Status:'' Fix deployed by Canvas 12/20

====Quiz Points Showing as 9.99999999999999 instead of 10====
+
====Special Characters in Fill in the Blank Questions====
-
*''System'': Canvas
+
*''System:'' Canvas
-
*''Problem:'' When viewing a quiz, the point value is displayed as 9.99999999999999 instead of 10.  Upon editing of the quiz, the point value is displayed as 10.  This is a known issue in Canvas that is due to the system not rounding correctly when it totals it up on the quizzes page.
+
*''Problem:'' In Fill in the Blank questions, if there are any special characters (%$', etc) AND the answer is more than one word (Newton's Law), the student's answer will be marked incorrect, even if it matches exactly the correct answer given by the instructor.
-
*''Workaround:'' None available.  Students will still receive the correct percentage points when they take the quizThis is a display bug.
+
*''Workaround:'' If your answer requires special characters, use the "Multiple Blank" Fill in the Blank type questionsSo the example of Newton's Law would display as two separate blanks "Newton's" and "Law" instead of one blank with "Newton's Law."

====MP3 Media Files In Quiz Not Converting====
+
====Disappearing Students in "Assign to" Section of Practice Quizzes====
-
*''System'': Canvas
+
*''System:'' Canvas
-
*''Problem:'' MP3 files which are imported in batch to a course(such as an imported export file) do not correctly trigger a new conversion of the files in the course right away.
+
*''Problem:'' In practice quizzes, students in the "Assign to" field may disappear (if the instructor is assigning to individual students) resulting in practice quizzes assigned to no one. Usually the students will disappear about five minutes after saving the settings of the practice quiz.
-
*''Workaround:'' None currently available.
+
*''Workaround:'' The first workaround is to assign the practice quiz to everyone within the course. The second workaround is to change the quiz type to a "Graded Quiz" and then assign the quiz to the students taking the quiz.

====Number Of Questions Given Differ From Settings====

-
*''System'': Canvas

-
*''Problem:'' We have reports of one course, where on a quiz setup to give a 20 question quiz, a couple of students received 7 questions and the rest received 20 questions. In addition, it appears that seven test students and two real students started the quiz at the exact same time.  Instructors, if you encounter this issue, please contact e-Learning Support Services at (352)392-4357 option 3 or by e-mail at learning-support@ufl.edu with so that we can work with the Canvas Engineers.
+
-
*''Workaround:'' None currently.  However, it is best practice to avoid editing question banks on live quizzes.

-

-
*''Problem:'' We've verified that folks in the Designer role are currently unable to view Unpublished course content.  This is in direct relation to Canvas' work on permissions.
+
-
*''Workaround:'' We suggest these folks use the Facilitator role.  Canvas has suggested "For now, the only workaround is for designers or whoever may be setting up the course to immediately publish any assignments they are working on, as this will make them available for further updates."

====Unable To Download Canvas App For Nook HD (Android 4.0.4) From PlayStore====
 
-
*''System'': Canvas
 
-
*''Problem:'' When using a Nook HD (Android 4.0.4) users are unable to download the Canvas app from the Play Store. Users receive an incompatibility error when attempting to download and are unable to install the app. According to the system specifics guide, the OS is compatible.  The Nook HD does not have a camera, and the Canvas app requires permission to access a camera within the Android device.  This is causing a point of contention.
 
-
*''Workaround:'' Use mobile browser or desktop/laptop computer until this issue is resolved.
