Getting Started

Bugs and Workarounds

  1. Uploading a gradebook with newly-added columns will fail if the columns are added *after* the "totals" columns in the CSV file (this assumes you are using a previously-downloaded CSV from Canvas). Add your new columns *before* the Totals columns to prevent the problem.
