    In the July 2023/20.23.7 Preview Release Notes, there's no mention of the Quiz Timing Improvements (big changes) that are the default/only option in the July 20.23.7 release (refer to the high impact changes timeline).

    Is this an oversight?

    Hi Suzanne. Thank you for the question.

    It is not an oversight. This feature requires some additional work and will be published at GA.

    So is it the documentation that requires additional work or the feature? GA for which phase?

    Hello,

    Would this be the same with the "SIS Course Merge" Teacher Initiated Section Association" that is indicated under May-July on the D2L Product Roadmap?

    Also, we are looking for clarity on the "SIS Integration: Grades Passback"? It looks like this has been pushed back to Aug-Oct however our district was told this was possible over two years ago. We are anxiously awaiting its release. Thank you!

    It will be published as Release Notes, not Preview Release Notes, on July 6th.

    More things need to be added to the release note.

    Hi All! Some notes about the July 2023/20.23.7 Release Notes:

    • The release note for "Quiz Timing Improvements" will be included in our final release notes on July 6. This is a big change and the documentation is not yet finished.
    • The release note for "SIS Course Merge Teacher Initiated Section Association" will be included in our final release notes on July 6. Information about this feature is under embargo until that time.
    • @Tracy.W.238 we are looking into your question about "SIS Integration: Grades Passback". We'll share an update next week with with the information we've gathered.

    I hope this clears up some of the confusion!

    Hi,

    With this in the July release:

    Brightspace Editor includes a new limitation of 2 million characters including hidden formatting for all Content files. This limitation applies to any content experience or when using Manage Files.

    What actually happens to pages that have gone over this limit? Is content removed? AN error?

    When will the new Quiz Timing changes take effect? I've been checking our environment and I still see the old options.

    Hi @Kyle.A.453! The Quiz Timing changes are in the July release (Generally available July 6); however, depending on which regularly scheduled Continuous Delivery Wave you're on, you might not yet see those changes. For more information your update schedule, I suggest you consult with your in-house Brightspace Administrator, and refer to the 2023 Wave Schedule topic.

    Has anyone encountered issues with the new update to announcements (Aug release) where the announcements no longer dismiss when selecting the x to dismiss?

  • Bruce.B.64
    Options

    Hi @Zoe.E.620 - Regarding your inquiry about the Issues with the new announcement feature update (Ability to pin to the top of the announcement window). If you are encountering an issue where you can not dismiss the announcement; can I request you work with your LMS Admin to have a case created with D2L Support to have that triaged/investigated, please?

    We appreciate you advising us this is an issue so we can prioritize a solution for everyone.

    Thanks! Bruce

    HI Bruce.B.64,

    We reported this in our Release Quality meeting w/ Megan Walker, Judy, B, etc. two weeks ago.

    Thank you @Jane.M.801 & @Zoe.E.620 - I spoke with Release management this morning and they confirmed that https://community.d2l.com/brightspace/kb/articles/22308-announcements-unable-to-dismiss-announcement-posts has been fixed with customers in production environments that were updated between August 16 -18 & 23 - 25, 2023.

    This was published on August 14, 2023, and you should see this corrected in your lower environments in September 2023. If your environment was updated on August 10 or 11; this will be updated on September 14 - 15, 2023 (or during an upcoming hotfix, whichever comes sooner).

    Let us know if you have any additional questions - Bruce
