A round-up of all improvements and changes to the Buzz platform in versions 2.0.130 and 3.0.28, available on November 16, 2017.

Updates

In this release, we added Google Team Drives to our Google Integration, so that documents in these drives appear as Google Doc options.

Fixes

In this release, we:

  • Fixed an issue where using drag and drop to move activities or folders could allow them to disappear.
  • Fixed an issue where making edits to a newly created domain's subdomain could sometimes result in Buzz explicitly saving inherited settings to the new subdomain.
  • Fixed an issue where teachers were unable to importing scores using a CSV file if the title had tabs in it.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused scrollbars to appear unnecessarily when printing student grades.
  • Fixed an issue where the Performance/Gradebook tool wouldn't display an All Grades print preview when selected at times.
  • Fixed an issue where period scores would always appear red in the Performance/Gradebook tool.
  • Updated the way the Performance/Gradebook > Student screen displays icons for submitted and completed activities. When a student submits a gradable activity, both teacher and student now see a document (submitted) icon. Once the teacher grades and returns the activity, both now see a green checkmark (see screenshots).
