I've been using Illuminate's gradebook since its inception, and have never had a problem creating a short name for my assignments. Yesterday I tried to make an inactive assignment active and got the following error message: 'The Short Name specified contains invalid characters'. I also tried naming an assignment using a title I've used for years and got the same message. Here are the 2 titles I tried using:
9/3-9/7 Reading Log
Growth Mindset #4
When I tried creating these without the "/", "-", and "#" I was able to create the title. Why the change to no "special" characters? These titles worked on Monday, but on Wednesday they did not.
