Users increasingly want to access Canvas via our mobile apps. And the most common questions / reported problems we hear about the mobile app have to do with logging in; specifically, entering the URL for the Canvas instance where the user's account resides. Making it easier for users to pick the right Canvas instance will significantly improve the Canvas mobile user experience.


User goals

As a user:

  • I can search for the name of my school rather than entering the URL for my institution (which I might not know)
  • I can still enter the URL if my school isn't yet listed by name in the app


This feature was released into production Canvas on 8/28/14.
