September 18, 2021 Production Release Highlights

  • Manage Assignments and Quizzes Granularity: The Assignments and Quizzes permissions have been updated to support permissions granularity for add / delete and manage / edit. This permission does not affect discussions, which are managed separately.
  • Manage Groups Granularity: The Groups – add / edit / delete permission has been grouped into three separate permissions. The permissions are grouped in the permissions list as Manage Groups.
  • Improved Outcomes Management: The Improved Outcomes Management feature replaces current outcome listings in accounts and courses with better creation, navigation, search and import experiences. This change helps administrators and instructors make more meaningful decisions as they import, organize, and edit outcomes in their account and courses.
