Blackboard (Faculty) - Known Issue: Drag and Drop Not Working in Course Navigation Menu, Content Areas, and Grade Center

This document provides an overview of a known issue with Blackboard where course menu, content, and Grade Center items cannot be moved via the drag and drop.

Following the recent Blackboard upgrade, issues have been reported with dragging and dropping items in the Blackboard course navigation menu, in content areas (Coursework, About This Course, etc.), and in the Grade Center. A ticket has been submitted with Blackboard but, until a resolution is discovered and applied, the following is a workaround allowing faculty to re-arrange items in those areas.
  • Click the Reorder Columns button (indicated by up and down arrows). This button always appears at the right of the screen. 
    • In content areas, such as Coursework, this is located at the top-right corner of the page. In the Grade Center Column Organization area, this is located on the right side of each grading section. In the course navigation menu, this is located on the top-right corner of the menu.
  • In the "Reorder" menu that pops up, select the item that needs to be moved.
  • Click the up/down arrows to move the item to the desired location.
  • Click the Apply/Submit button when finished.
