Canvas is continually creating new features to improve your user experience. The majority of improvements will be made available as part of our regular release cycle. However, some features may affect your personal interaction with Canvas.

Feature tags identify the state of each feature. Features ready for use in your production environment do not display a label [1].

Enabling a beta feature may create unintended behavior within your Canvas account.
