How to Report a Canvas Problem

PLEASE report a problem as soon as you can after discovering it.  If you are a student and do not report a problem until after an assignment deadline has passed, your instructor may not grant you additional time due to technical difficulties. When reporting a problem, provide as much information about your situation as possible.

Steps to create a Canvas Ticket:

  1. Select Help from the Help Corner.
  2. Select Report a Problem.
  3. Include the full name and section of the course where you are having the problem including the instructor’s name, then describe the problem in detail.  For example:  In my COM101-701 Introduction to Communication course, when I click the submit button to submit my Final Paper assignment, I get an error that says that my document is an unacceptable file type although the type of file that I am submitting appears to be an approved file type.
  4. Once you create a ticket, you will receive a confirmation at your Skipjack email account.
