Change my Password??? 1/5
I can’t figure out how to change my password for the app!! It’s so frustrating.
Great application! 👍 5/5
I always trust Canvas to help my daughter’s education 👍❤️
By AbuWorking mom of 3
It’s a train wreck. Parent access is useless. I loathe the skyward/canvas log in log out times all my kids.
Can’t get this years classes 1/5
I am linked to my daughter’s Canvas account and can’t get her classes for this year. It only shows me her classes for prior years. Have said something to the school and haven’t heard back. I have no idea who to ask to fix this. Also, from what a teacher told my daughter, Canvas doesn’t weight the grades so a 92% in Canvas can be an F in the grade book that they officially use. Prior to the pandemic there’s always problems with Canvas grades not connecting to the grade book and then having to be put in manually, and grades getting missed.
Not parent friendly 1/5
By jp in bako
This app should make it easier to track students’ progress. Instead, there’s an email notification every time time teacher grades an assignment, but no grade is shown on the email. So there’s no purpose to the dozens of emails each and every day. Once your email is set in parent canvas, there’s no way to change it to a different email (like a secondary account you don’t mind getting hundreds of emails a week on.) And even on the app itself, your student can submit an assignment but it will show as unsubmitted until it’s graded by the instructor. THIS IS USELESS! I need to know what assignments my kids need to turn in! Wholly unsatisfied with this app. Trying to figure out how to delete it & stop the email train.
I miss School Loop! 1/5
By Davis iTunes
Every school day for years I got an email that posted on the front page my Caden’s grade. I miss that terribly!
I would give 0 stars if that was a choice 1/5
Happy to be onboard 5/5

I can track my child’s progress in school.
Canvas parent 3/5
Extremely difficult to log in via email and password since it requires school email
However, very easy to long in using Q code
Easy to use 4/5
It’s easy to use and good to see if things have been submitted but would be good to be able to see as a parent the teacher comments or at least the grade when notifications received that the item is graded.
Next to useless 1/5
This App does show your child’s overall grade in the classes they are taking, but that’s about it. I get notices that a teacher graded an assignment, but I can’t see what they did wrong. I get notices that the teacher made a comment on an assignment, but I can’t see that comment. I get notices that assignments are missing, but my kids have turned them in. Horrible App for parents especially in this time of virtual learning. We need all the available feedback to help our kids succeed. And of course they don’t care, because we are forced to use this App if our kids’ school uses Canvas.
Doesn’t work 1/5
Having many errors and it’s not refreshing
By Happy camper xoxo
I’m so frustrated with this app I’d give it zero stars if I could.
No account settings! Notification options. Garbage.
Love the app 5/5
Love having my children’s grades at my fingertips. The only downside to this app is acquiring the code from a child who goes to school in another state and “keeps forgetting”.
Crap App 1/5
I am giving this app one star due to crappy customer service! I sent a request in two weeks ago and keep getting a generic response!
Agree with Johnny’s Dad 3 4/5
I agree with everything he said and do want to reiterate that the app needs to sort the assignments by date. I had such a hard time trying to figure out what was due when that I recently decided to log onto our Mac as my kid. I now keep that up while working on the other monitor so I can see what my 6th grader has/has not completed. It is so much easier to do that than try to sift through the mess on the app. Again, I agree that the quick ability to message the teachers on the app is great, and good on the go, but really started relying on the student version on the Mac for everything else.
Love it 5/5
By cb cmhf h,gc,hfc
I love it, I can monitor my sons status and I’m no longer in the dark regarding his school work.
Can’t log in 1/5
Can’t log in. System is a mess.
By fix the replys
Would be great if the teachers actually all used it and put their grades in.
By batb mm
It seems as though not all assignments show up as submitted when they actually are.
Everything it should be! 5/5
Overall pretty good 3/5
There is a lot of good information available but it’s not entirely intuitive. The dashboard has different info than other pull down menus.
Not very easy to organize 2/5
I cannot get last years courses off my dashboard or order them in any useful way
Horrible infrastructure 1/5
Very hard to follow not user-friendly at all.
What can’t we see a cumulative grade as the work gets added. Teachers grade things so late I can’t tell if it’s the teacher or my student turning in late work.
Frustrated MOTHER!!!!! 1/5
Nothing I did s working. The pairing doesn’t want to work....E V E R!!!! Why must schools use programs that just don’t work?????
Needs Improvement 3/5
This app provides some visibility into assignments grades and class communication.
However, parents will still need to login as a student to see what students submitted and teacher comments for graded work. This is extremely challenging when you have multiple kids. Please fix this and enable parents to see graded work and teacher’s comments.
Invalid pairing codes 1/5
Every time I try to link to my students account, it says invalid pairing code. Even when copy and pasting!!
Our tax dollars at work 1/5
This app is a complete failure at every level.
Impossible to log in and change notifications!!! 1/5
Email communication is cumbersome 1/5
By Yuck. Canvas.
I hate the email function on Canvas. I don’t like that you can’t include more than one recipient. It is also very difficult to track emails from more than one child’s account.
Way to many clicks to determine if what assignment my child should be working on.
Missing calendar for one of my kids 2/5
I can see a full calendar for one of my kids but when I switch to the other, there are no assignments showing. I can see them on canvas online. Can someone PLEASE help with this?!
Monitoring Work 1/5
This app is so inconvenient to keep track of what is submitted and what comments are made. You have to click on way to many things. Organized poorly and not user friendly.
Parent app and website ok when they work 2/5
By mama in oregon
The app and website are okay when they work. The problem is that rarely happens. Website regularly dumps me to a we don’t know what happened error. Support says talk to the school about log in issues, but it works occasionally with browser saved passwords, so it’s not a login problem, unless the site is down.
App is about a day behind, so if I get a notification email I have to wait a day and then I can read the details in the app. Just this side of useless.
Could be a lot better 3/5
The interface is clean and is generally intuitive. But needs some major improvements.
You have to quit the app and reopen to see updates, which is annoying.
The app sends you emails saying an assignment has been graded but doesn’t tell you the grade, so you have to go the app. Where as I noted, you have to quit and reopen to see changes. Refresh doesn’t work.
Hope to see some changes soon!
Parent app is horrible. 1/5
By middle and highshool parent.
This app is garbage it needs a lot of work.
Parent app inaccurate missing assignments 1/5
Very frustrating that assignments show up as missing or not submitted on the parent app but when you look at it in the student app is has been either submitted and not graded or just graded.
Cannot trust what is displayed in the parent app.
Most annoying experience ever 1/5
Other than seeing what assignments are currently due I do not like anything about this platform. You cannot edit notification setting in the app. Anytime you log into the online version it always gives you error messages and says it doesn’t have access to reset passwords.
This makes it easy for me to check on my child’s work. If there are any issues I can easily go over the misses assignment and get them on track.
Getting app to work is hard 1/5
Setting up the app is not easy due to issues with knowing where to find the student’s pairing code. The QR code function is not working.
By Johnnys Dad 3rd
Great app overall. These are the things I’ve noticed thus far and I hope this feedback is helpful. Some courses show in ascending order and some show in descending order by way of the date. It would be nice to see that each course only went one way or the other for searching purposes. Auto checks on the side of each finished assignment would be nice as well. Status seems to auto change to viewed on some if not most assignments but once data or uploads were entered by the student if that initiated an auto checking system I think both students and parents might find that helpful. I’m sure a lot goes into programming as it is and I just wanted to share what I felt is an honest review. The parent side of the app I overall find as being very user friendly and enjoy being able to simply send a quick message to the teachers as opposed to searching down specific emails. Great job with that : ) I also like the customizable notifications as well. Thanks!

Can’t find my school 1/5
By cant gind my school
Can’t find my school
Still receiving notifications that I have turned off. When I receive notifications and put in my e-mail address to the Microsoft request, it says it does not recognize the e-mail address. I think part of the issue may be that it is too complicated to have some information coming from Parent Canvas View and also information coming via e-mail. My children have said the same thing.
