Where in the gradebook can I type the student's final grade for the course so that they can see the final grade they are getting to receive?
David, are you asking for a place to put a letter grade or number grade. For a letter grade Canvas will do this automatically if you add a grading scheme to your course - How do I add a grading scheme to an assignment? If you are looking for a place to add a total/final number grade, then this isn't possible. Canvas auto-calculates total group grade and total course grade; the only thing that can be manually entered are individual assignment grades.
Does this help answer your question?
This is one of the things I hate about Canvas.
Professors can't add a simple column and can't type a simple letter inside of it. Ridiculous.
