Customizing Your Dashboard
WHAT IS THE DASHBOARD?
The Dashboard is the landing page for Canvas and shows information about your current classes.

To locate courses not on your Dashboard click on the “Courses” link and then “All Courses.”
CAN I REARRANGE MY DASHBOARD?
YES! Simply click and drag course cards to rearrange your dashboard.
Yes! You can customize your dashboard by clicking on “Courses,” then “All Courses,” and then selecting the star next to the courses you want displayed.
WHAT COURSES SHOULD I KEEP ON MY DASHBOARD?
We recommend that you only keep courses on your dashboard that you need to access quickly. When there are a large number of courses on your Dashboard from past and future semesters it can be confusing and even lead to clicking on the wrong course.
