The entire online format is a disaster. It is disjointed, requires multiple outside programs to utilize much of the required assignments. The app is worse than the online format. It hasn’t worked properly for weeks, so I deleted it and re-installed it, now it just gives me an error message over and over- it is completely useless now. Was there an update that broke the already limited use? For an online Master’s degree, I would expect a far better program, especially at $750/per credit that I am paying.
Literally every 60 seconds I get the same notification over and over. “Post your week 1 introduction” “Post your week 1 introduction” “Post your week 1 introduction” “Post your week 1 introduction” “Post your week 1 introduction” “Post your week 1 introduction” “Post your week 1 introduction” It does that, I have pictures to prove it does it every single minute.
You previously were able to copy and paste into the class discussions, and now that’s not possible. If you type anything over a couple words it’s so slow. The words will lag for minutes after you’re done typing them in. Plus, it’s easier to type and organize your thoughts in a another app (like word) and then copy paste it over. It’s not accessible anymore, and that’s frustrating.
It was working great and since they updated about a month ago it has not worked since. This new “update” fixed nothing. It’s a MAJOR inconvenience not to be able to use this app that I NEED for school and there seems to be no urgency in fixing it. Extremely frustrating!!!
For when the app crashes in between discussion board post... I am no longer able to paste! Let’s place a cache of user data even when the app loses WiFi connectivity or app crashes.
I really like that there is an app to help you look at your courses even faster than having to go through the web page and login in a lot of times just to get to where you want but I like with this app you can do just that very quickly :) I really enjoy using it, it’s very helpful! 😊
The app keeps freezing. It stays at its loading with its trademark symbol, but nothing happens. No matter how long I wait, and the app stays with its trademark symbol. I keep restarting the app, but nothing happens. I even try deleting it and re downloading it, but it stays the same! Please fix this, Canvas!
Asking me to rate this app.
It kicks me out all the time!!!!!
The app works great. I can easily see messages, grades, files, announcements, etc. however one bug persists and it’s the one that logs the user out whenever they tap a notification. This bug is unbelievably annoying and something that I hope is fixed before I graduate.
This app is much more modernized then blackboard.
I normally I don’t write app reviews but this app made me do it. I have to use canvas every single day because my campus use that. It crushes every day. Or doesn’t just work properly.
This has been an issue for some time now. No problem on my iPhone. iPad stays on the icon and does not transition to dashboard.
Once I plug in my info for the duo, it takes me to an empty screen with my school’s duo logo on it. Need to fix that!
I had no issues with this app previously. In fact, I rather liked it. Now it won’t open despite deleting and reloading the app and restarting my phone.
After downloading the latest version . Canvas is not opening ?? Pleas help
App normally works great. It isn’t opening right now....
Hey creators of canvas, I love your app, as it allows me to read my chapters and engage in class discussions when I’m on break at work. One problem now. I do love your logo but I wish to push past this screen to access my studies. For the past few days it won’t go past the opening screen with logo. Yes, I have uninstalled, restarted and did a backflip. It just isn’t working. I will change back to a 5 star once I can read my books again. Thanks for your prompt response
I used to love this app but now it’s becoming one of my most hated. The app is completely useless for discussion board posts right now. Can’t copy and past from my pages app to the discussion board in the app. When I type a post the app lags terribly after I reach 50 words. When a post had more than 3 replies a “read more” button appears but doesn’t work when pressed. All of these things make the app useless for discussion boards. FIX IT!!!
I got the update a couple days ago, since then it won’t even open... just stays stuck on the screen with the logo. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, didn’t work... please fix this!
The app stays on the loading screen and won’t let me access my classes. Very inconvenient
Canvas had a lot of problems previously but they have fixed some of them. One problem still occurring is that when I go to a class, and go to a quarter, it’ll say “there are no assignments to display”. It gives a percentage of the quarters grade, but won’t display the assignments.
Whenever I click on a notification, I am logged out and have to do “Find my School” again. Very annoying
Before the update you were able to see your grades across all the quarters and see exactly what score you made out of the possible points. Now. It only displays one number and sometimes no numbers at all. It now also only shows you your grade for two quarters. I can’t make sense of it. I am unable to even tell my grades to my parents. I never looks at the grading section anymore because it tells me nothing. I’m not sure why they decide to change things with the update. It was working perfectly before. Everything else about canvas is sufficient and is a great tool for school.
App will no longer open after update two days ago 😑
I can’t open the app! It will not load and I have to turn in an assignment 😒😤
Great app! If only it doesn’t keep crashing on me and, signs me out every time I open the app
Once my university started implementing the two-factor authentication app DUO into the Canvas system, the app no longer allows me to login. It gets stuck during the two-factor-authentication process. It asks me to open DUO to authorize once I put in my username and password, but doesn’t let me continue once I allow access to Canvas. It gets stuck on the two-factor authentication screen. Please help
This app will no longer let me paste into it I have to go on line and turn in my assignments now
biggest flexer of the century
The app seems like it could have a lot of potential and is great for time management but I’m constantly getting logged out of the app and therefore not getting notifications. It’s a hassle to have to login every time I open the app.
I like this app and use it for school, but I have one main issue. When I get a notification about a grade being posted (or any notification), and click on the notification, it logs me out of the app and prompts me to search for my school and log back in. Pretty irritating!
I need to be able to add items to the calendar in the app (and auto sync with the desktop program); things like “no class today,” or assignments for a class for which an instructor doesn’t/won’t use canvas. (...or is it just me, and I’m missing where to click to add to calendar?) Thanks for your help! :)
My school uses duo mobile to authenticate logins and when I try to click on remember this device for seven days it does not except this input and forces me to login again. This is extremely annoying because every time I try to use the app it makes me re-login every time. Please fix this issue!
I love most of this app!!! Great to keep updates while on the go. However, when taking multiple classes at once that are very discussion heavy, it is an absolute nightmare to have to remember which discussions I have and haven’t seen, and how to find my posts. I have to scroll through tons of posts (some which don’t load) to find my stuff. The website lets you filter discussions by keyword which helps. It would be great if the app had this. Also when I get a notification, I’d love to click it and have it take me to the exact new post like Facebook does. Canvas could literally save me hours a semester by fixing this. Other than that, it’s great.
This such a helpful app for me to have to check announcements and messages from teachers. Thank you for making it possible to view submission comments on assignments. The only request I have is to please add a function to allow students to view grade distributions in the app.
Only recently did I start to have major complaints. Now that the assignments in the courses aren’t in chronological order by due date as they used to be, the calendar has also stopped displaying the icons. As always the browser on any device continues to be the best option for anyone doing anything. Barring only checking the time, switching the profile picture, playing with the colors, and renaming the courses.
Doses not work
It was good but when the professor attaches files to the submission comments I can only see the attachment on the computer version.
You guys need to update this app again. It's the best I see everything I need and I can do so much through it! But, everyday I check it and when I click my notification I get from the app about a class every time I click that notification on my phone to go to the app I automatically get signed out! And it's soooo annoying signing back in everyday. Literally everyday I get signed out! Please fix
I am just amazed how this is going to change how we learn and stay organized.
Whenever I press on notifications for canvas, the app completely crashes, makes me reselect my school, and doesn’t even show me what the notification specified? I just wanted to see my grades exams and it doesn’t even show up in the grades/assignments which is pretty garbage.
New version does not display any of the comments under the weekly discussion. Not the first time this has happened nor is this the first time issues have popped up and I have contacted them to correct display issues. Why is it that hard to make a good app that can connect to and displays the discussion. How can people work on their degree when they can’t submit comments thru the app.
It logs me out of the app every time I use it. Might as well just bookmark the page on your browser on your phone. This alone makes me not want to use this app at all which is why I am giving it 1 star.
It’s pretty user friendly, notifications are done pretty well, though I’d like the option to click on them and be taken to the message, grade, etc., in question. In the messages area though, there’s not a great way to see who you specifically replied to, for example if a message started as a group message and you only reply to one user. Also, there’s no way to not “reply all” by default; I had to manually remove every student from my class one by one. Overall it’s a good app, and so far developers have been good about responding to feedback and fixing problems.
I can’t upload any worksheets or click on any posts in the modules or else the app freezes!!! Please fix this, this is affecting my grade.
The app keep getting better with every update.
consistently crashes and logs me out every time i try to directly open a notification. beyond annoying and inconvenient.
