Bug Fixes  

  • We fixed an issue with assignment syncing that caused assignments to display a queued status when they had already synced. Users should no longer see synced assignments stuck in a queued state. 
  • We fixed an issue with School Analytics Report (Limited Availability) that prevented the report from loading when schools have 12 or more user roles. Administrators can now access the School Analytics Report when there are 12 or more user roles in the school. 
  • We fixed an issue with the cross-listing export file that displayed incorrect course and section titles. Administrators downloading the cross-listing file will now see the correct course and section titles for their organization. 
  • We fixed an issue with auto-import for Demographics that prevented the file from importing as scheduledThe Demographics file will now auto-import as per the schedule. 
  • We fixed an issue with edited managed assessment titles that prevented the updated title from displaying on the course materials page, and within the managed assessment’s page title. Administrators can now edit the title of a managed assessment and the updated title is displayed correctly in all areas of Schoology. 
  • We fixed an issue with Live Progress for Current Item in assessments that prevented the correct status from being displayed. Live Progress for Current Item will now display the correct item number when students are navigating through an assessment.
  • We fixed an issue with the calendar that prevented special characters in the title of an event or course material with a due date from being displayed correctly in the calendar view. Events or course materials with due dates that have a special character in the title are now displayed correctly in the calendar view.
