Snap - Error Messages in Collapsible Menus Should Expand Menu

    With the recent updates to the Snap theme, error messages which appear in collapsible menus on activity settings page no longer expand the menu when they appear. To the user, it appears that the page is being reloaded for no reason.The user thinks the changes are saved and navigates away from the page, and is later confused when the changes they thought they saved are not present.

     

    For example, if attempting to add a Quiz activity with an end date set before the start date, the page reloads when saving, but the user must expand the Timing heading to see there was an even an error.

     

    Although other themes, such as Boost, do expand collapsible menus when an error is presented in them, I have been informed that the menu remaining collapsed is the expected behavior in Snap.

     

    Expanding menus when errors appear in them would be great usability improvement for our users.
