I'm trying to add the external tool Perusall to my Navigation links at the left side of Canvas. Although I have successfully added Perusall to the course, I don't see it in my list of navigation items. Can you help?
Hi Peter Not all external tools appear on the navigation menu; some can only be accessed via a module or assignment. I've not used Perusall so I can't say for certain whether it can me made available on the navigation menu. If it is possible to have the tool on the navigation menu but it's not currently showing in your course, you might need to go into course settings and edit the navigation menu as described here:https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12933-415257079
Thanks, Steve. Yes, I’ve been to course settings and can’t find Perusall listed, nor any way to add a new navigation item.
Have you checked out this guide on the Perusall website: Overview of LMS integration | Perusall
I think this quote might be key to your problem,
"Either way, you will also need to provide your LMS with a consumer key and a shared secret, both of which are specific to your institution. Contact Perusall Support from your official university email address to retrieve your institution's key and secret."
Let us know if this helps,
Thanks, Kelley, yes I think I did the key and secret. Perusall is in my list of Extern apps, but I can’t seem to figure out how to get it to show up as a Navigation button.
