Canvas - How do I create a Microsoft Office 365 collaboration?


You can use Microsoft Office 365 to create a collaboration with a Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint file. You can select individual users, groups, or both as part of a collaboration.

Notes:

  • If you cannot create a Microsoft collaboration, this feature has not been enabled for the course.

  • Once you invite a user to a collaboration, the collaboration is available to the user in the user's Microsoft OneDrive. Uninviting the user or deleting the collaboration does not remove access to the collaboration once a user has been added.
