NEW FEATURE: Canvas survey respondents can access CES in a new tab when browser security settings block the iframe


Prerequisites: The institution’s Canvas User Integration must be on LTI 1.3

Description: Canvas users of Course Evaluations & Surveys can now access CES with strict 3rd-party cookie settings enabled in their browser. Strict 3rd-party cookie settings enabled in a browser can prevent a user session from signing in to CES from Canvas. In this release, users will no longer have to change browser 3rd-party cookie settings to access CES.

If your institution’s Canvas User Integration is utilizing LTI 1.3, users with strict 3rd-party cookie settings enabled will have the option to open CES in a new browser tab. If they have strict 3rd party cookie settings enabled, users will receive a 3rd-Party Cookies Blocked message with a Open in a new tab button, which opens CES in a new browser tab. This allows users to move forward with their daily work or to the evaluation without making changes to browser security settings.
