How do I preview items in Commons before rating/downloading them?
Hi Tim, and welcome to Canvas and the Canvas Community! Commons resources currently have limited preview capability. You can preview files, images, and video and audio files. For a complete course review (not a preview), you will need to import the entire course into one of your sandbox courses or course shells, and many schools create so-called "preview sandboxes" for this exact purpose. You can read more about what is available in Canvas Commons in How do I preview resources in Commons? and instructions for importing a Commons course are in How do I import and view a Commons resource in Canvas?
And more preview options are in the works! You might want to add your feedback and vote to Canvas Commons Preview , a popular feature idea that is in the "Gathering info" stage and is still open for voting.
