How do I use the Dashboard as an observer?
The Dashboard is the first thing you see when you log into Canvas. The Dashboard displays at-a-glance information about what is happening in all current courses for students you are observing.
You can return to your User Dashboard at any time by clicking the Dashboard link in Global Navigation.
In Global Navigation, click the Dashboard link.
The Dashboard is your landing page in Canvas. Depending on your institution, your Dashboard may default to one of two views: Card View or Recent Activity View.
View Student Dashboards
To filter your dashboard by student, click the Student drop-down menu , then click the student's name . The dashboard view displays based on your student's dashboard view.
View Global Announcement
The Dashboard may also include global announcements, which are announcements created by your institution. To remove the announcement from your dashboard, click the Remove icon.
View Dismissed Announcement
If you dismiss a global announcement, you can view dismissed announcements on the Global Announcements page.
