    In  Canvas, in the global navigation, I can place files into the "My Files" folder. However, inside my actual courses I cannot access the my files folder. When I called Canvas support, I was told something to the effect that; My Files functions like just a storage space for your files, but nothing beyond that. 


    My ideas it to just allow users inside their own course, to root back to the 'My Files" folder. Not too up on the jargon, but basically since the root folder is already there, I don't think it would take a lot of re-coding to plug back to the main folder.


    For professors teaching multiple sections or similar types of courses, just being able to instantly plug their files in would be a great help. I know there's workarounds, just feel it would streamline the process, and make things a %1000 easier. Share your thoughts.
