Canvas iOS - Schedule a Reminder for an Assignment from my iOS Device

On iOS devices, you can schedule notifications for upcoming assignments. You can schedule reminders 5 minutes, 1 hour, 1 day, or 3 days before the due date. When the reminder time arrives, the app will reopen the assignment to the details page.


Reminders cannot be set for past assignments or assignments that do not have a due date. This lesson shows how to open an assignment through a course, but you can also schedule reminders by opening assignments in the To Do list.
