How do I attach a file to a Discussion reply as an instructor?
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.
You can attach a file to a Discussion reply using the attachment icon. Attached files are also uploaded to your Personal Files in the unfiled folder.
- You can only upload one attachment in your reply. Once an attachment is posted to a discussion post, the attachment cannot be deleted.
- Instructors have the option to not allow students to attach files to Discussions. If you cannot attach a file, this feature has been disabled.
Click the title of the discussion you want to participate in.
After adding content using the Rich Content Editor to the discussion reply , click the Attach link .
Note: If you cannot attach a file, this feature has been disabled.
