A round-up of all improvements and changes to the Buzz platform in versions 2.0.133 and 3.0.31, available on December 14, 2017.

Fixes

In this release, we:

  • Updated the Activity List to scroll to and focus on an activity that users search for.
  • Updated the Gradebook page to reposition to the left of the screen after filtering results.
  • Fixed an issue essay questions were not marked as "attempted" when students had reviewed them.
  • Changed nongradable items (i.e., <gradable>false</gradable>) to always report the its period as the same period as its root folder. For example, if a nongradable activity is placed inside a rootfolder with a period of 1, then the nongradable activity will also have a period of 1.

New Buzz UI

During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI, giving you the same features and functionality with a cleaner, simpler user experience!

The release notes in this section pertain only to those using the new Buzz UI.

Highlight: Updated Calendar!

As previously announced, we've overhauled Buzz's Calendar tool to give you a smoother, more intuitive experience!

With this update, you can:

  • Hide and show deadlines from multiple courses at once.
  • Show a list view of all deadlines on or after a selected date.
  • Easily review events across weeks and months using next and back buttons in the toolbar.

New Buzz UI updates

In this release, we:

  • Updated the Activity List to scroll to and focus on an activity that users search for.
  • Updated the student Home screen and teacher Final Grades to reflect updates to Buzz UI.

New Buzz UI fixed issues

In this release, we:

  • Fixed an issue where, in the Activities > Course Home screen, filtering by group twice would change the Grading Periods filter to All.
  • Fixed an issue where the selected group was not highlighted in group dropdown.
  • Fixed an issue where, if an admin signed in using the same computer/browser a different admin had already signed in on, the UI would display some permission options for the first admin regardless of the second admin's permissions.
  • Updated the Editor to display content copied from an external source using the Library without manual refresh.
  • Fixed an issue where replacement variables in assessment questions were not being observed when previewing the assessment in the Editor.
  • Fixed an issue where switching the Grading Periods dropdown in the Editor > Group settings screen wouldn't consistently show the correct content.
  • Fixed an issue where adding a projects folder from the Library to the Projects screen wouldn't assign all the content to the correct period.
  • Fixed an issue where a Custom Question may not properly report what mode (e.g., active, print, review) should be displayed.
  • Fixed an issue where changes made to the ID for an activity or folder created in the Syllabus were not being saved.
  • Fixed an application-hang error in the Activity Editor when a course author edited an activity's course resource and then switched to a different group before saving the change.
  • Fixed an error in the Group Settings Editor that occurred when you edited some settings for a group, and then switched Grading Periods from the toolbar. At that point, you could no longer edit settings for any group in the Group Settings Editor.
  • Fixed an issue where Quick Lists weren't showing up in the filter on the People screen.
  • Updated the Gradebook page to reposition to the left of the screen after filtering results.
  • Fixed an issue where filter selections made in the Gradebook for courses with domain-level Grading Periods turned on wouldn't remain selected when the user navigated away from the screen.
  • Fixed an issue essay questions were not marked as "attempted" when students had reviewed them.
  • Fixed an issue where daily and weekly digest notification may not work.
  • Changed nongradable items (i.e., <gradable>false</gradable>) to always report the its period as the same period as its root folder. For example, if a nongradable activity is placed inside a rootfolder with a period of 1, then the nongradable activity will also have a period of 1.
