How do I view Assignments in the Canvas app on my iOS device?

The Canvas app helps you keep track of all course assignments. You can also view newly created assignments or changes to assignments in the Notifications tab, and you can also schedule reminders for upcoming assignments.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.

Note: The Course Navigation menu matches the browser version of your Canvas course. If you are a student and Assignments is not available in Course Navigation, it will also be hidden from view in the app.
