As I begin my new roll as a Canvas Admin for my district I am constantly meeting with teachers to help them begin or continue their journey with Canvas.  There are many times I work with the teachers on items such as the steps of Creating a Google Cloud Assignment or Cross-listing their classes together or creating an online assignment and even though they do fine with the steps when I am there to with them, they sometimes ask me if I have a document with the steps for them.  Most of the time I point them in the direction of the Canvas Help guides but over the past few months I have started creating One-Page Documents for the teachers so they have the directions in an easy format with step by step directions.  I hope you find these directions helpful.  All of these documents have been created in google drawings so feel free to make a copy and customize as you like.
