How do I change the privacy settings on my Projects?

You can set the visibility of individual projects in the project settings menu, as well as manage commenting. Visibility options include public, signed-in Canvas Student ePortfolios members, your connections, and private to you. If your project contains sensitive information, consider blurring sensitive information in any attachments as well as adjusting the visibility settings.

Note: Changing the privacy settings for your projects does not automatically change the privacy settings for your profile. You may want to update your profile privacy settings in addition to your project privacy settings.
