How Do I Submit A Feature Request?


Sometimes, even exploring solutions with the instructional support team, users have legitimate reasons for wanting to see a specific change in the software to accommodate their needs. 

A way to do that is to make a Feature Request directly to Instructure, the parent company of Canvas. Any user of the Canvas LMS can make such a feature request. The request then goes through a 3 step process. At the end of the cycle, if the request gets enough votes from the community, it will make its way into a future update release of Canvas.

To submit a feature request, you first need to create a Canvas account. You can create a Canvas course on the cloud in order to obtain a Canvas account.
