Hello Amazing Canvas Community, Thank you for your comments on this thread. At Canvas we care deeply about accessibility and are always improving our product to better meet the needs of all of our users. We will look into how we can best address this concern and will report back with an update.

Emailing students in an Unpublished coursehttps://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/57403.25 - Product Radar6/1/169/7/16174October 2016 Chris Ward: Due to the variety of institutional policies around terms and when/how courses are made available to students, engineering a solution that takes all the edge cases into account will be difficult. Unfortunately, due to this, we won't be moving forward with this idea at this time.
16
Attach multiple files to a discussion replyhttps://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/49143.25 Product Radar3/2/166/1/16116June 2016 update from Christi Wruck: This isn't something we're going to be able to do in the near future. We understand the convenience that this could provide, but it's outside of the scope of what we can reasonably accomplish at the moment.
17
Completely Anonymous Grading, Persistently Blind Gradinghttps://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/53653.25 Product Radar5/4/168/3/16124Christi Wruck: We would like to make some upgrades to the anonymous grading features we have in Canvas. This sounds like a great idea. We don't currently have resources planned to work on anonymous grading in the next 6 months, but anonymous grading is something I'm interested in researching more so that we can build out more robust functionality. Thanks for the idea submission. At some point, you may see an invite from me to join a group to talk more about anonymous grading.
18
Allow Admins to hide Course Menu Bar Items by Defaulthttps://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/47293.25 Product Radar3/2/166/1/16128July 2016 update from Mccall Smith: We are currently researching a bigger project that could involve cleaning up the menu bar for instructors and students. We do not have a timeline quite yet. However, it wont be in the 6 months so this idea will be archived.
19
Formatting of Announcement Notificationshttps://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/48483.25 Product Radar3/2/166/1/16135October 2016 update from Chris Ward: We'll be shelving this idea at this point. As much as this makes sense, HTML support for email is really tricky to get right, and the team's pipeline is overflowing.
20
Two Part Quiz Questionshttps://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/41203.25 Product Radar1/6/164/6/16144May 2016 update from Jason Sparks: We are looking at longer-term solutions for the issue described here. We may not be able to include this into our roadmap for Canvas Studio: Modern Quizzing Engine right away; however, I will keep this one in my back pocket for potential inclusion. For now, I will archive this idea.
21
Download discussion board postshttps://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/53563.25 Product Radar5/4/168/3/16160October 2016 update from Chris Ward: You can currently get this data through Canvas Data. I know it's a bit of a workaround, but unfortunately due to the team's commitments we don't have bandwidth to implement a more elegant solution for this use case at this time.
22
Question Bank Repositoryhttps://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/56043.5 Under Consideration6/1/169/7/16142September 2016 update from Jason Sparks: As we continue to explore the item bank feature set for the Canvas Studio: Modern Quizzing Engine , we will look into how we can best accommodate this idea. Thank you for the idea! We intend to entirely overhaul item banks for the better.
23
Support Grading History in large course siteshttps://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/42363.5 Under Consideration1/6/164/6/16297September 2016 update from Christi Wruck: We have a team that is currently working on making sure our current Grading History page will go as far back as you need it to. This won't include any major Front End User Interface changes, but it will make the history for large courses work. I've moved this idea into "In Development" because it is!

We now have a substantial amount of uses cases to review when/if we tackle this project. We do not have plans to build this within the next 6-18 months, so we are going to archive it at this time. Please make sure you are following this thread to receive notifications of updates when they are made available.

Canvas Error Report - Send Broken Link errors to instructor
https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/5458Archived5/4/168/3/16131October 2016 update from Mccall Smith: Thanks everyone for your input. As many of you mentioned there are measures in place to prevent instructors from adding broken links. There has been great recommendations on how others in the community have handled this problem. Having broken links in the course is the problem here. We will focus our attention there rather than focusing on who gets the error message.

Add Assignment Columns Directly in Gradebookhttps://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/5461Archived5/4/168/3/16160Christi Wruck: We have thrown this idea around several times. Currently, we do not have plans do this in the next 6 months. The goal of Canvas is to be a full teaching and learning system, and if we add the ability to add assignments, and then discussions, and then quizzes, and then modules, and then assignment groups and then... to the gradebook, we are at risk of becoming a gradebook system instead of a Learning Management System.

Improve Student Crocdoc Comment View/Accessibilityhttps://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/6272Archived9/7/1612/7/16167Christi Wruck: Unfortunately, we are limited by the technology offered to us by Crocodoc. We don't have control over the features they add or update right now. But with any luck, they'll make some improvements in the near future. Sorry we can't be more helpful here!
