In the Grade Editor, it seems that the "Activity" link now goes back to the actual assignment.  Is that correct, and if so, was that recently changed? 

Thanks.

Actually, it does not link... please disregard.

Buzz is timing out very quickly now.  It seems that I need to sign-in a lot more frequently.

Also, it doesn't tell me that I have timed out and that I need to sign back in, it either gives me an error or just doesn't open what I click on, so I refresh the page and it takes me to the login screen - very frustrating.

In addition, previously, if Buzz timed out while I was editing something, it would allow me to sign back in while still in the edit mode and I wouldn't lose data.  Now I have to totally refresh and everything is lost.

Hello Serena,

Buzz doesn't have a timeout option enabled by default, the logout would happen if your Domain Admin has a timeout configured in the domain settings or if there are connectivity issues on your local network. Please coordinate with your authorized support contact to troubleshoot this behavior.
