Review from Patti Walsh
This used to work, sort of. Now, even though my parent account works fine on the web it says I don't have any students associated with my account. Bollocks. I'm not going through the sign up process multiple times. As a teacher myself, the fact that the parent app doesn't work causes issues with parent communication. Parents are rightfully frustrated when they can't easily access their kids' information. Fix this!
So frustrating! Error after error. I tried multiple ways of logging in, and couldn't even get past the "add student". Tried it on both my Android and on husband's iPhone. "Support", don't even bother telling me to submit a report or email someone to get a fix. It seems I'm not the only one, and I won't even attempt to download this again until you completely overhaul it and FIX IT. Get the developers to do their dang job!
I downloaded the Canvas Parent app, created a new account with my Gmail address, and have not seen anything but error screens for hours. Tech support seems to think I have the Canvas Teacher app, and, I was told to type "canvas" instead of searching for my child's school. That just brought me to yet another area where I cannot log in. I was given directions to try another log in process, but that didn't work either. The log in flow seems to have about 3 or 4 variations, and none of them end anywhere besides an error. Tech support seems to have given up - they stopped responding.
This app has created more frustration in our lives which is not the way it should be. It crashes it locks you out, it doesn't remember the school or district etc...please fix it and stop wasting parents time.
Save yourself the frustration and just use the website. This app is unreliable because I keep having access revoked. From reading the reviews it seems to be a common thing. And even when I did have the app working the information was limited and difficult to find.
I have been trying to see submitted work and it says I can't see it in off in app to use a browser, have tried to sign in under parent in a browser but it says wrong sign in for my child's info. Crazy not to be able to see submitted work.
During my generation, we didn't have anything where parents can get updated with their child's school academics and activities....and today, in modern time, there's Canvas, which is so informative and helpful....Canvas really allows the parents to have . much stronger connection in their child's everyday life!!!!!!
We have added a new login flow and fixed some bugs.
Private, secure social app for schools, districts, teachers, parents & students.
