• View assignment descriptions and due dates
• Set reminders for assignments
• View assignment grades
• View course grades
• Set grade alerts
• View course announcements

Important: This mobile app is only usable by parents whose children attend schools that have enabled Canvas Parent.

Trying to sign up and I can't type into the password field. Makes it impossible to create an account. Update: got in but leaving the score at over star. App is very hard to use, no clear way to see assignments due today and the calendar has no consistency on what it shows. It is like they don't even try to think about the end user. Really poorly thought out.

I get too many notifications, sometimes more than 10 emails in one day, and they take too long to check, so I end up just ignoring and deleting them, which is not helpful or useful in any way, and is a big waste of time. There is no way to limit notifications without shutting them off altogether. It would be much better to be able to set some parameters for notifications, like perhaps, get notified only of missing work or if a grade is below a certain level/percentage.

08/28/19 Another year of using this poor mobile app. This time the calendar doesn't match the web site version. Missing assignment. Why do schools continue to use this App. This app is very not helpful. After reading a screen it flips back to the top of the list, instead of where you were. So you have to go through the whole list again. This real messes you up then you are looking at Thursday and it goes back to Monday.
