How do I make comments public in my ePortfolio?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). This lesson may include two images for specific steps to show the difference between the two designs. Unless otherwise indicated, the functionality and location of the components remain the same. The view available to you is determined by your institution.

Once you enable comments in your ePortfolio, you can choose to make comments visible to the public.

Note: If your ePortfolio is set to private, only those who have access to your ePortfolio will be able to view comments. Learn how to share a private ePortfolio.
