How do I report bugs?

First, ensure what you want to report is a bug, which means the feature is not performing as intended. What you may think is a bug actually may be intended (we’re working on a document to help explain some of those behaviors). Otherwise, please follow these steps:

1. See if your bug is a known issue specifically related to the preview beta Gradebook.

2. View the list of reported bugs. The Reported Bugs section is located in the main focus group page— look in the left sidebar under the blue buttons.

3. If you still can’t find a report for a specific behavior: open Canvas, contact TMI to submit a detailed description of the issue.

How do I make suggestions for improvements to the Gradebook?

First, check to see if your suggestion has already been made, or is in development, by visiting the Canvas Studio page on the new Gradebook.  Log in to the Canvas Community and add your voice to the discussion, or propose a new feature!
