Mobile Page Views

The Student app supports reporting mobile page views to Canvas. Canvas admins can track mobile page views in the Page Views section of a student’s User Details page. Each page view in the Student app is assigned a URL that corresponds to a page in the web view of Canvas.

 

 

Mobile page views are only sent to Canvas from the Student app when a student leaves, or backgrounds, the app.
