January 21, 2023 Production Release Highlights

Updated Features: 

  • Improved Inbox Functionality In the Inbox, coding has been updated to improve functionality for all users. Please see the release notes for details. 

New Quizzes Updates: 

  • Turning Off the New Rich Content Editor in New Quizzes A bug was found that causes content within a quiz (course media, files, pages, etc), or a math equation to improperly copy over during a course copy if it was added to the quiz with the new RCE. The problem is that course content is not copied within the quiz, rather, it remains linked to the original course. In cases when a student doesn’t have access to the original course, the content won’t be viewable by them. This only affects New Quiz content that was created after the new RCE was enabled for New Quizzes on December 17, 2022 and then copied to a new course

    Classic Quizzes is not affected. If you need to troubleshoot content that might be affected, please read the full blog post for action steps.
