I know that I've rearranged mine so that they are in order by section but I cannot advise a colleague.
Ah, but there is a way! Just click and hold on a card you want to move. Drag it down/up and drop it before a card (this bumps that card rightward) or between two cards (bumps the rightmost card down). Slow but sure.
Hello there, Lisa Vicars...
Currently, there is not a built-in way to re-arrange the course cards on your Canvas Dashboard. There are a couple things I can point you to, however. First, there is a "Canvancement" script developed by James Jones that can be used individually or can be installed at your school's Canvas account level (so that it would be available for everyone) called Sorting Dashboard Course Cards. However, there is also a Feature Idea that's been submitted that is now listed as "In Development" called Reorder Dashboard Boxes. I'm not exactly sure on the timeframe as to when Instructure would have this completed, however.
I hope this information is helpful to you, Lisa.
Hi John Hurdle...
Yup... My response from September 10th was correct at the time, but then on December 8, 2018, Instructure released a new feature that made James Jones' "Canvancement" obsolete: Canvas Release Notes (2018-12-08). :-)
And as proud as I was of the script, I'm glad to see it go
John Hurdle Thank You for revisiting these old conversations! Yes indeed, it's now possible for the user to rearrange course cards, as depicted in How do I view my favorite courses in the Card View Dashboard as a student? (the process is the same for an instructor).
