When using OneNote 2016 (and correctly mapping a class notebook to the correct Canvas course and mapping students), it was possible to "link" Canvas assignments with OneNote pages provided they had the same time. For example, if I created an assignment titled "Homework 1" on Canvas, and then named a page on OneNote 2016 "Homework 1", OneNote would be able to pull all the necessary information (total points, due dates, etc) from the Canvas assignment. I was able to review student work and send the grades to Canvas without creating the assignment on OneNote explicitly. It was just a page on OneNote that happened to function as an assignment because of the associated name on Canvas.
I find that this is not the case any more with the app version of OneNote. Has anyone encountered the same problem for discovered a solution?
Some background: Most teachers at my school create assignments on Canvas that we import from year to year. Therefore, all of our assignments are already setup on Canvas. I would like to avoid having to recreate each assignment by using the "Create Assignment" option on OneNote.
