Create page links to whole folders?

Hello Canvas,

Does anyone know if there is a way to create a link (for example in a page) to a whole folder of resources rather than just an individual file?

Many thanks,

There is not a "built-in" way to do this, but it is possible.  Here is a short screen cast showing you:

If your students use Canvas by Instructure mobile apps, be aware that direct folder links won't work directly in the app -- they will open a mobile browser (e.g., Safari).

Also, folder links don't work well as External URL items in Modules.

In the old community we were told that full support for linking to Files folders was not planned.  Perhaps it's time for a Feature Idea to ask that this be reassessed...
