Using Canvas for Student Affairs

Community Member

Hello, has anyone used Canvas for things other than academics and learning? Our Student Affairs and Engagement department are wanting to replace some of the processes/tools they have now. For example, our students use the Ready Education app to track event attendance, post buy/sell of books and other class materials, send notifications, etc.. They have asked if Canvas is a possibility for their needs, but I can't seem to come up with a way to accomplish what they do with the Ready Education app to what Canvas can offer. has anyone else done something like this? Those familiar with the Ready Education app see any way those elements can be replicated/simplified with Canvas? Thank you in advance!
