Fixed Bugs


Message All Learners Tool

The Instructor Exercise Dashboard option to message all learners in a group is now disabled when there are no group members. Previously, the option to message all learners was enabled even when there were no learners in a group.


Exercise Date Picker

Users can configure their exercise schedule using the Date Picker. Previously, the Date Picker did not always work.


Accessibility LTI Workflow

After creating an LTI link to an exercise, admins are redirected to the linked exercise. Previously, admins had to navigate through a tool that was not accessible to keyboard-only users.


SAML Error Message

Organization admins can configure and save SAML single sign-on integrations. Previously, an error would occasionally appear in the Practice interface when an admin tried to configure or save a SAML single sign-on integration.
