How do I link to other Canvas pages in my course?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

Within a page, you can insert links to other Canvas pages within the same course.
