Settings Menu Terminology Adjustments
The Discussions Settings menu includes several terminology adjustments for both teachers and students. This change aligns with Discussions terminology and also prepares for future Discussion enhancements. In the Discussions Settings menu, the Edit Discussion Settings title has been renamed to Discussion Settings.
In the list of menu options, references to post have been renamed to reply or replies.

Settings Sidebar Adjustment
The Gradebook Settings Menu has been adjusted to a sidebar. This change aligns consistency with other menus in Canvas. When the Gradebook Settings Icon is selected, the content displays as a sidebar instead of a new window within the browser. No Settings functionality has been affected.
The Late Policies and the Grade Posting Policy tabs display by default. The Final Grade Override tab only displays if the feature is turned on for the course. If available, the feature will be available in the Course Settings Feature Preview tab.
Course Settings Publish Buttons
Course Publish and Unpublish buttons display in the Course Settings page. This change allows courses to be published from either the Course Settings page or the Dashboard.
In the Course Details tab, the top of the Course Settings sidebar includes the course Publish and Unpublish buttons. Courses can be published and unpublished from either the Dashboard or Course Settings.
When a course includes graded submissions, the course can no longer be unpublished and the buttons will be removed from the page.
