====Group Assignments Broken by Deleting Group Set====
+
 
-
*''System'': Canvas
+
-
*''Problem:'' Instructor created a Group Set and an Assignment that was assigned to that group set.  Later, the group set was deleted and recreated with the same name.  The Assignment still appeared to be correct because the Group Set was named the same thing, but when students submitted, the Assignment treated every student as his/her own group.  There should have been an alert when deleting the original Group Set that there was an Assignment attached and that the new Group Set would have to be re-attached.
+
-
*''Workaround:'' Make sure that Group Sets assigned to an Assignment or Discussion are not deleted, or if they are, that the Discussion or Assignment gets re-attached to the new Group Set.

*''Status:'' Under investigation by Canvas Engineers.

*''Tool'': Crocodoc

*''Problem'': When an instructor uses Crocodoc annotations for a supported assignment submission type (primarily Word documents and PDFs), the Firefox browser frequently removes the last annotated comment when updating the score field in SpeedGrader. This behavior is a Crocodoc-specific limitation within Firefox that cannot be resolved by Crocodoc at this time. To warn about the effects of Firefox and Crocodoc annotations, Canvas displays a warning banner that says “Warning: Crocodoc has limitations when used in Firefox. Comments will not always be saved.” To avoid losing any annotations, instructors may choose to use another browser when providing Crocodoc annotated feedback, or try clicking the screen before navigating to another student.

===Gradebook displays incorrectly for courses with differentiated assignments after exporting grades with "mark ungraded as zero" chosen=== System: Canvas 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. NOTE: Students view of their grades is not affected. Workaround: Clear cache and cookies in your browser to reset the gradebook to it's correct view Status: Under investigation by Canvas Engineers.
