On October 19, 2019, Instructure will release enhancements to Canvas that affect the instructor experience within course(s).

Course Navigation

The Course Navigation Menu will feature color and visual indicators that show active menu items.  The active link will be displayed in black with a vertical line on the left. Inactive links, currently in light grey text, will show an eyeball with slash (visibility indicator).  Hovering the cursor over an inactive link will show a tool-tip indicator that provides the reason the link is inactive.

Gradebook Post-Policy Icon Updates

In the grade book, the word Manual will be in the column header to indicate the assignment is set with the Manual Posting Policy. The outlined visibility icon will show only when entered grades need to be posted. The orange visibility icon will no longer be displayed anywhere in the grade book.
