How do I manage my User Files in the Student app on my iOS device?

You can manage all the personal files in your Canvas account in the Canvas Student app. If necessary, you can manage My Files to clear up space within your course account.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.

Notes:

  • The Unfiled Folder stores documents, graphics, and any other files from your account that you have posted to different areas of Canvas, such as Discussions. Deleting these items within current courses may create broken links and submissions.
  • You cannot delete files that have been submitted as an assignment.
  • You cannot move files from one folder to another in the Canvas Student app.
