How do I set a course submission comment for a Turnitin Assignment?

The account administrator can set a standard comment that all students will see when turning in a Turnitin-enabled assignment.

Course instructors can add their own personal message to be shown for any assignments in their course.

Note: These steps are only applicable for the Turnitin Plugin in Canvas. If you have questions regarding the Turnitin LTI, please contact Turnitin.

Enter your message in the Turnitin Comments field [1]. When you are finished writing the comment(s), click the Update Course Details button [2].
