  • If your institution has enabled the Scheduler tool, you can sign up for any appointments that are created for your course using the Scheduler page. Appointments can include office hours, group presentation time slots, and lunch with an alumnus.

    Scheduler is an optional feature that may not be available to you in the Calendar.

    Note: Currently, Scheduler has two options for viewing appointments. This lesson is for users with the Scheduler button as a calendar view. If your calendar does not display the Scheduler button, you can only sign up for appointments in the calendar sidebar.

  • If you do not already have a Canvas account, you need to create an account before you can log in to Canvas.

    If you are using Canvas through your institution, you will most likely already have an account and need to accept a course invitation. Your institution will email your login information. If you do not yet have an account, you can create an account when you accept the course invitation. If your institution is using Canvas and you are having trouble with your account, contact your administrator for assistance.

    If your institution is not using Canvas, you can create your own account, also known as a free-for-teacher account, to create your own courses.

    Note: Free-for-Teacher accounts are always free. However, they do not contain all features available to institutional users of Canvas. Learn more in the Canvas Account Comparison PDF.

  • Parents can sign up as an observer in Canvas. Observers can link their Canvas account to their student's account so they can see assignment dues dates, announcements, and other course content. Observers can view the course content but cannot participate in the course.

    This lesson is for parents who do not have a Canvas account and want to observe their students in their courses.

    If you already have an account from your student's institution, log in to Canvas using the credentials given to you.


    • If the registration banner is not available in the login page, the institution has not enabled this feature. Please contact your student's institution for assistance. The registration banner is enabled through Canvas authentication.
    • To observe a student, you must know the student's Canvas username and password.
    • The student must be enrolled in the course and must accept the course invitation before you can sign up to observe the student. If you receive an invalid username or password message during the signup process and the student's credentials are correct, check with the student to verify that he or she has received and accepted the course invitation.
    • Once you have an account, you may be able to view student information through the Canvas Parent app. Access to the Canvas Parent app is controlled by the student's institution. If you already have an account from your student's institution as an observer, you can always view student information through the Canvas Parent app.

  • In addition to setting a due date for an assignment, instructors can specify a specific date range when students can submit the assignment. These dates are called availability dates. These dates are optional and can be set depending how you want to manage the assignment.

    In Quizzes, availability dates may affect student submissions. For more details, view the Quiz availability dates lesson.


    • Beneath the Due Date and Availability date fields, Canvas will display the time zone date and time according to context. If you manage courses in a time zone other than your local time zone and create or edit a due date for an assignment, the course and local times will be displayed for reference.
    • When Multiple Grading Periods are enabled in a course, only due dates are validated against closed grading periods. Availability dates do not apply.

    Hoe gebruik ik de kalender als cursusleider?

    The Calendar is a great way to view everything you have to do for all your courses in one place. You can view calendar events by day, week, month, or agenda list. The calendar also includes access to the Scheduler, which is an optional scheduling tool in Canvas.

  • Crocodoc is a tool that allows annotations on online assignment submissions in Canvas. If Crocodoc has been enabled for your institution, you can use Crocodoc for assignments. You can also use Crocodoc when viewing annotated feedback on assignment submissions.

    When you open a submission, Crocodoc will automatically save any annotations made to the submission file for one hour. You can restart a Crocodoc session at any time by refreshing the submission page. To help you avoid losing work, Canvas will generate a session expiration warning after 50 minutes.

    Some browsers may not initially render comments correctly when viewing feedback. If your browser includes a built-in PDF viewer, select the option to view the PDF in the system viewer. You can also download PDF files with comments to view on your computer. The settings required to view or print the annotations in the PDF vary based on the software installed on your computer.

    Compatible Crocodoc Files

    If a submission includes a file that can be rendered in Crocodoc, but the submission preview is not complete, Canvas will generate a message stating the document is still processing.

    If a file is submitted that is not compatible with Crocodoc, the Canvas document previewer will still display the file, but Crocodoc markup and commenting will not be available.

    Canvas currently supports .doc/.docx, .ppt/.pptx, and .pdf Crocodoc file formats.


    • Crocodoc is not available in the Canvas beta environment, so Crocodoc documents will never be rendered.
    • Files over 100 MB and password-protected files will not be converted by Crocodoc.
    • Crocodoc annotations can be viewed in the Canvas by Instructure app.
    • Crocodoc annotations cannot be viewed by screen readers; for users with accessibility concerns, please leave feedback in the assignment's comments sidebar.
    • Crocodoc has limitations when used in Firefox. To avoid losing any annotations, click the screen before navigating away from the page, or choose another browser.

  • You can export scores from the Gradebook and download them to your computer as a CSV file. At the time of export, the CSV file data matches the current filter(s) and settings shown in the Gradebook.

    Notes about CSV files:

    • Some columns that appear in the CSV file are read-only columns calculated by rules or percentages set in Canvas. Any changes made to these columns will be ignored when you re-upload the file to your course.
    • For assignment group columns, changes made to assignment scores will automatically be included in the assignment group calculation in the Gradebook.
    • CSV downloads honor multiple grading periods. The Gradebook exports the grading period being viewed in the Gradebook. For All Grading Periods, if the option to view total grades is not enabled, Total Score columns and assignment group totals are not included in the download.
    • The Total Score displayed in the Gradebook reflects each student's score at the time of viewing, taking into account whether the instructor has chosen to have ungraded assignments treated as zero, muted assignments, assignment due dates, etc. Therefore, the CSV download includes read-only columns for current and final score. Current score reflects the total while ignoring unsubmitted assignments, and the final score counts unsubmitted assignments as zero.
    • If a student has submitted an assignment multiple times, the CSV file only accounts for the most recent submission.
    • The notes column is not included in the Gradebook CSV export file.
    • Concluded and inactive enrollments are not included in the CSV file unless their respective option, Show Concluded Enrollments or Show Inactive Enrollments, is enabled in the Gradebook Settings menu.
    • Complete/incomplete assignments are shown as full or no credit (e.g. for a 10-point assignment, 10 or 0).
  • If you do not already have a Canvas account, you need to create an account before you can log in.

    If you are using Canvas through your institution, you will most likely already have an account; your institution will provide your login information. If not, you can create an account when you accept a course invitation from your instructor.

    If you are not using Canvas through your institution, your instructor will provide you with a join code to link you directly to the course. This code will be sent to you separately from the Canvas email that invites you to join the course. If you need to create an account in Canvas but have not received your join code via email, please contact your instructor or institution for help with logging in.
