Problem: We are seeing several reports of problems with the drag-and-drop move feature in Bb.
Solution: We are working to replicate this issue and get a fix from Bb. In the meantime, the workaround is to use the arrow buttons at the top of the item list:
Problem: When editing a group set, the list of students will not sort by last name (or other criteria) as expected.
Solution: This is a defect, but Blackboard has not indicated a future release in which it may be fixed. In the meantime, a workaround is to open the Grade Center in a separate tab or window, select the students in the Group Set using a smart view, and sort them as needed. In the other browser window, the group set can be managed normally.
Problem: Attempting to reorder items while managing the course list and grade center results in overlapping items, and/or the items do not appear to go where placed.
Solution: This is a known bug in Bb, which we are waiting on a fix for. In the meantime, you can use the reorder button (a grey box with an up/down arrow set, above the list) to manage list order.
Problem: Attempting to delete announcements imported from old courses results in an error similar to ” ORA-01407: cannot update (“BB_BB60″.”ANNOUNCEMENTS”.”ORDER_NUM”) to NULL”.
Solution: Re-ordering the announcement before deleting it should allow it to be deleted.
