[Portfolio] sections overriding groups?

Just FYI: We figured out our problem with this issue, and it wasn't a bug.  We didn't realize the instructors do NOT need to be added to sections in order to see them in the matrix, but DO need to be added to groups in order to see those.  We had created a group but failed to add the Instructor to that group.  So, no bug, but a learning curve!

Hi All,

I'm writing to let you all know of a problem we've encountered and to see if anyone else has had this issue.  We have an instructor using a matrix for collection of course materials.  He has sections for multiple class rosters within his course, and it seems that the sections are overriding his ability to create specific groups.  In addition, he is not able to see matrices for anyone who is not specifically listed in his roster or sections.

We are filing this as a bug, but I just thought I would send this note out to see if anyone else has encountered this problem.

All best,
