Great, could be greater

I like how smoothly I can access the different features I normally use on my desktop. I can get to my inbox, discussions, assignment pages, and grades easily and the text, pictures, and videos are all there and clear. I do wish the designers would add a few things, though. On the desktop, I can access an edit and delete button in the discussion threads. Those aren’t on the mobile app, unfortunately, so I have to log in on my laptop or desktop if I want to edit anything I’ve already submitted. I wish the edit and delete buttons were on the mobile app. I also can copy and paste on the desktop without the font formatting changing. If I do that on the app, I notice colors and sizes change and spaces can disappear between paragraphs. I do wish there was a way to copy and paste without that formatting changing. I also wish there was a way to delete submissions from my files page. That’s not on the mobile app or the desktop version. Aside from that, I really like this app. Homework would be delayed without it. With this, I can access my school stuff anywhere I have a wifi signal.

Pretty great, but would love some improvements!

Edit: Would it be possible to only receive notifications for replies to my own discussion post and not all discussion posts?

I like the app in general. It sure is handy. I don’t like that the To Do tab only shows a limited amount of tasks and that you can add or view To Do tasks that were added by oneself. You can view the To Dos you added using the desktop website in the Calendar tab in iPad and iPhone, but you cannot add, edit or delete them. I really wish the To Do tab was more useful in the iPad and iPhone apps. Another thing I noticed is that when a particular course imports quizzes from an external application like Cengage Mindtap, it does not mark the assignment as completed in the To Do list. It has to be checked off manually. I wish the To Do list (or List View in the Dashboard tab on desktop) were enhanced as having a comprehensive and editable list of To Do’s is very useful for students to track their assignments. I also noticed that the Inbox feature in the mobile app versions lack a couple capabilities that at least exist in the desktop version. For example, members of a group message can view who is in the message thread while on desktop. But in the mobile apps, you would only see the addressees by clicking reply all.

Great App!

I have been using Canvas for about a year now and it's been very helpful! Although the initial switch from Google Classroom to Canvas in my school district was hard, I have now gotten used to the apps interface and how it works. I like how organized everything is in the app, I can see all my classes laid out when I open it. If I click on one of my classes, I can easily open modules to find my assignments. I can also keep track of my assignments with the todos tab and inbox which shows messages from my teachers. Turning items in is also an easy process (depending on which format). You can turn in with audio, website URL, media recording, file upload, or text submission (depending on what the teacher chooses as submission process). Another great aspect is that all of your assignments are sorted by unit in the modules making it very easy to find your needed assignments. Overall Canvas is a good app, I only gave it 4 stars because on several occasions my teachers have made the app more difficult by allowing only a certain type of submission/ locking material by mistake, etc. I do have one recommendation, and that is when you film an in app video submission, there should be a pause button, I have experienced times when I was not able to pause and I wanted to.
