Your new "Assignment Allowed Attempts" feature is useful and aligns the behavior of assignments and quizzes in Canvas. Please consider adding the option of per-user-reattempts for assignments. This can be done through moderation for quizzes and is very handy in our standards based assessment environment. Our students can request a reattempt on…

Right now attendance in Canvas isn't that useful/effective. Below are the ways it could be improved: When viewing a specific student's information allow faculty to see a snapshot of the whole semester, including the specific date that a student was present, absent, late, etc. Knowing the number of days a student has been absent is useful, but for…

I always find it useful to search for content using an index or an actual search tool rather than just scrolling through all of the pages one by one to find what I need.  I can see many uses for this: As a student, I know that a particular topic was covered but I'm not sure where.  I can search the course for the keyword and the page hits will…

When I am using the "Embed Image" tool in the Rich Content Editor, I usually have need to insert multiple images from the same or nearby folders (at the very least, in the Canvas tab and Course Files folder under Image Source, and more often even in the same final folder. Up to about a year ago or so, canvas used to retain the last-used folder…

We work hard to make our Canvas courses look great. We use images, paragraph spacing, and uniquely styled headers to give our course a modern, clean, inviting atmosphere.   However, on the Syllabus page, the "Course Summary:" heading includes a colon that cannot be removed. Headings do not require colons. Yes, this heading is before a list, but…

This idea is based on extending the Formula Question type to allow for multiple answers to be entered by students.   Currently, the Formula question type is fine for simple calculated answer questions that only ask for one final response from students. We have several instructors that would like to generate data based on ranges, but also to ask…

GraphQL is great and makes querying Canvas for information a breeze but without SIS IDs in the data, we cannot link the information back to any of our other systems. Can we please have the following SIS IDs be valid fields that can be returned by GraphQL: sis_account_id sis_course_id sis_group_id sis_group_category_id sis_login_id…

Seesaw is a digital portfolio app that allows parents to see student work as it is posted. Students save and share their assignments with teachers, parents, and peers. They snap a photo or video, draw, or write--in addition to adding audio or annotations. I see SeeSaw as a great way to get elementary teachers (at least in my district) into Canvas.…

Standardized testing looms large in the minds of all 3-8 grade teachers, in NJ where I work especially,  but also across the country. One of the skills students need to be able to succeed on the PARCC or SBA is to organize their thinking while reading across texts in an online testing environment, in order to write coherent essays and answer…

Right now, if you import the same content from the commons into a course you have already imported into, it does not make a new copy of the content.  This is a desirable behavior for fully fleshed out content, but with the option to bring in content as a copy, it would open up the Commons as an amazing templating tool.  For example, a teacher…
