Hi Friends,

 

Have there been any discussions about enabling deep linking functionality in the Canvas mobile app?

As far as I can tell, there currently is not a way to format a link to a course item in Canvas from an external resource (like a Google calendar) that would trigger the opening of the Canvas mobile app rather than taking the user to their mobile browser.

 

This would be desirable functionality because there are a lot of items that just don't look as good in the mobile browser as they do in the mobile app. In the browser, you lose a lot of screen real estate to course nav etc.

 

For more info about mobile deep linking see Mobile deep linking - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Thank you!
