Buttons not Working on Canvas Student App

Hello

I recently noticed that the buttons to my modules that I created work great on my laptop, desktop and even on my phone (if I log into Canvas directly) but not on the Canvas Student App.

I tried clearing the cache and data on the app, uninstalling and reinstalling and still no progress.

I tried creating buttons again and reloading them using 2 different programs (Google Drawings and a button generator at www.clickminded.com/button-generator)

I created them to mostly help students that may be using their smartphones so they can quickly jump to the modules but this is not happening.

Any thoughts? Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks so much in advance.

Jackie

@felix_jackelin1,

This can be difficult to diagnose without knowing "how" you linked from the buttons in Canvas. If you can give a few screenshots of how you are linking (what does the page look like, HTML code, etc) I wouldn't mind giving it a deeper look. Thanks!

@felix_jackelin1,

One other idea is to make sure students disable "Prevent Cross-Website Tracking" for the Canvas Student app as mentioned in this thread. This isn't ideal, but has been successful in solving some of these issues. Thanks.
