Retrieve DocViewer annotation text from Canvas Data or API calls

Jump to solution

Students can annotate peer submission with review text inside the DocViewer tool. 

Is it possible to retrieve those annotation text data with Canvas data feed or via REST API calls? The submission_comment_fact table does not contain the review texts entered within DocViewer tool

Hello @zqian1 

I understand that you are asking about retrieving DocViewer annotation text from Canvas Data or API calls. 

I was not able to find any information on this in the Canvas guides, which leads me to believe that if can't be retrieved with those methods. 

Can we have you submit a ticket to Canvas support to see if they know if this data can be retrieved from the Canvas data feed or with a possible API call? 

HERE are the APi guides.
