Login to Last Page Visited Option

Login to Last Page Visited Option

Do you always remember what you were previously working on in Canvas when you last logged out? I think our students sometimes forget too. My idea is that site admins be given an option to choose what the users in their instance see each time they login.

Currently, all users when they login are automatically directed to the Dashboard. However, we have had multiple requests from our students that they would prefer to instead be automatically directed to the last page they visited before their previous log out. This would allow them to seamlessly continue their studies instead of having to choose the course then the modules screen then select the screen they want to continue working on. It would take the guesswork out of remembering what they were doing when they previously logged out.

I have discussed this idea with other Canvas admins who have agreed that giving the site admins the option of choosing a setting for Post-Login Screen to either "Dashboard" or "Last Page Visited" that would apply to all their users would be a powerful enhancement for Canvas.

I am eager to read your comments. Thanks for reading and considering voting for this idea.

This would be incredibly nice, and could save me some time.
