This article shows how to edit an existing assignment in Canvas and to publish it to make it visible. You can use the links below to jump to specific details, or read on to the Read Me! and Quick Start sections.
From within your course, choose Assignments > +Assignment
Or follow the detailed steps linked here.
Fill out the remaining sections of the assignment, then save it.
As you create the assignment, choose a location to link it from the list at right. (In the example below, the assignment would be linked to the Week 4 Activities page.)
Students won't see the assignment until you publish it. You can choose whether to publish the assignment when you create it, or to reveal it later.
You can edit any assignment after you create it. There's even a check box at the bottom of the assignment editing screen where you can notify students that the assignment has changed.
