Blackboard Learn
Service Pack(s):
In Ultra, when clicking on the next/previous attempt in a group assignment, the group's name does not change, but it retains the name of the previous group.
Steps to Repeat:
  1. Log into Blackboard Learn Ultra Experience as an administrator
  2. Navigate to System Admin > Courses 
  3. Create an Ultra course through the option Create Course > New (or open an existing course)
  4. Enroll some students into the course
  5. Create 3 or more groups in the course
  6. Create a group assignment and assign the groups created above
  7. Use one student in each group to submit work in the group assignment
  8. Go to the Gradebook and open the assignment
  9. Navigate to the next/previous attempt using the right/left navigation arrows
  10. Look at the Group's name under the Feedback section on the right-hand side of the page

Observed Behavior: 
When attempting to navigate to another group using the arrows on the top bar, the name of the group is not updated; it keeps the name of the previous group.

Expected Behavior: 
The group name should be updated everywhere on the page, including the feedback section, when switching to another attempt using the navigation arrows.

Target Release:
