Folders – Cannot Rename

There have been random instances of renaming a folder, content file, URL, etc.  When clicking on the Edit Properties option on the item and renaming it, then clicking Save the orginial name still appears on the page. This appears in both templates and sections.

There are two possible work arounds for this issue.
1.)  Click on the icon and move it to a new position on the content page using the black navigation arrows.
2.)  Click on the icon and remove the link from the content page and then add it back again.

A trouble ticket is pending at Blackboard Support.

Discussions – Unable to Print

If a message has an attachment and if there is an special character in the file name of the attachment, the attachment and following messages will not print.

Workaround – uncheck the message with the attachment, then once the printable view is created, copy and paste the message and the contents of the attachement in the printable view file.

Chat – Messages Read Unavailable/Available

Chat rooms may display repeatedly a message:
The Chat tool is currently unavailable. Try again later” then reads
The Chat tool is now available

Currently there is no fix for this issue. A trouble ticket is pending at Blackboard Support.
