Current Feature Requests Submitted to Desire2Learn:
- The ability to link multiple discussion topics to a single gradebook item.
- Retain all settings, specifically the requirement to use Respondus Lockdown Browser, when importing a quiz from the LOR.
- The ability to randomize all multiple choice/select questions for an entire quiz instead of having to do it question-by-question.
- The ability to link a discussion forum to a gradebook item instead of just a topic.

- The ability to link the attendance tool to the gradebook.
- The ability to add comments/feedback within attendance.

would then automatically populate the individual dates instead
of having to enter each date manually.
