  • The Calendar iCal feed is located in the sidebar of your Calendar. You can import the iCal feed into any calendar app that accepts the iCal format, such as Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, Outlook, and Yahoo Calendar. You can also download the calendar feed as an ICS file. The calendar feed will contain events and assignments from all of your Canvas calendars.

    Note: All future events, and past events within 30 days, are included when exporting a Canvas calendar to another calendar program.

  • Canvas makes it easy to reply to messages from other users in your Conversations Inbox.

    If you want to reply to a submission comment, you can reply using submission comments in your Inbox or directly from your assignment or quiz.

  • You can add a personal reminder to your own Calendar for an upcoming event.

  • If your institution has enabled profile pictures, you can add and change profile pictures in your account. If you do not see a placeholder picture in your user settings, your institution has not enabled this feature.

    There are three ways you can select a profile picture to use throughout Canvas:

    • Upload a Picture from your computer
    • Take a Picture using your computer's camera (not supported when using Safari or Internet Explorer)
    • Import from an existing Gravatar account


    Tips for profile pictures:

    • Please choose an appropriate picture to represent yourself. Your institution has the right to remove pictures that are not appropriate for a classroom setting.
    • Images should be square in size to prevent your picture from being resized or distorted.
    • Files can be any type (.jpg, .png, .gif) or size as long as you have room in your personal files to store the file. Canvas recommends that your profile picture be as small as possible.
    • Your personal files quota is enforced when uploading a profile picture. If you do not have enough storage space in your personal files, you will not be able to upload your profile picture. Create more space by removing some files in your personal files.
  • You can get help with Canvas by using the Help menu. The Help menu generates a list of resources to help you with Canvas. Canvas displays links according to roles in all enrollments; for instance, if you are a student who had one courses with an instructor-based role, the Help menu will show you links available to students and instructors.

    This lesson outlines the five default help links that may be included in the Help menu for your institution. However, your institution may customize the Canvas Help menu to hide default links and create custom links as resources.

    Note: Depending on your institution, the Help menu may not be available.

  • As an admin, you can manage grading periods for your institution. Each grading period set applies to the entire institution, including subaccounts. All courses associated with a term in a grading period automatically inherit the term's grading periods.

    As grading periods do not directly affect any course assignments, grading periods can be deleted or their start and end dates can be changed. However, changes should generally be made before a term begins. Changing grading period dates during a term will affect grade totals.

  • Each Canvas account displays a default Canvas theme. As an admin, you can create and manage themes designed specifically for your institution.

    Custom branding is hosted at the account level, and by default, sub-accounts and their associated courses inherit account branding. However, you can enable sub-accounts to use the Theme Editor; any elements that are not specifically changed will still be inherited by the account level.

    To learn how theme branding is displayed for courses vs user data, learn how to create a theme for an account.

    Note: If you are a sub-account admin and the Themes link is not visible in Account Navigation, Themes has not been enabled for sub-accounts.

  • You can align any outcome in your course to a rubric. Rubrics are used to help students understand expectations for an assignment and how their submissions will be graded. Outcomes can be aligned with a rubric for additional assessment and measurable performance.

    To align an outcome, the outcome must already exist for your account. Learn how to create account outcomes.


    • Outcomes can be added to rubrics, but rubrics cannot be added to outcomes.
    • Rubrics cannot be edited once they have been added to more than one assignment in a course.
  • You can view existing groups in your account. Viewing groups at the account level is similar to viewing groups at the course level. The groups created at the account level will still show up in the Groups menu in the Global Navigation menu.

  • Canvas helps you access your groups in the Course Navigation menu. Admins sometimes add instructors to an institutional group. If you do not see any groups listed, you have not been enrolled in a group.
