Added placeholder text to Add Background options in Styles & Themes to better inform the user of what is expected in each of the fields.

User Activity Report

The Enrollment Activity Details for a User Activity Report now includes the activity's (item) title in the downloaded report. Previously, only the activity (item) ID would be included which could make it hard to distinguish between the different activities.

Tasks in continuous enrollment courses

Students can now create tasks in a continuous enrollment course and have them appear in the To-do List and in the Calendar.
