How do I add annotated comments in student submissions using DocViewer in SpeedGrader?

Canvas  DocViewer is a tool that allows annotations on online assignment  submissions in Canvas. You can use DocViewer to view files and  assignments in SpeedGrader. You can view when students view annotated  feedback in the assignment details section of the sidebar.

When  you open a submission, DocViewer will automatically save any  annotations made to the submission file for 10 hours. Canvas will  display a session expiration warning at 9 hours 50 minutes, followed by a  5-minute and 1-minute warning until the 10 hour limit has been reached.  You can restart a DocViewer session at any time by refreshing the  submission page.

If your browser includes a built-in PDF viewer, select the option to view the PDF in the system viewer.

A student can view your DocViewer comments from the assignment Submissions Details page.

Compatible DocViewer Files

If a submission includes a file that can be rendered in DocViewer, but the submission preview is not yet complete, Canvas will generate a message stating the document is still processing.

Notes:

  • Files over 100 MB and password-protected files will not be converted by DocViewer.
  • SpeedGrader may take up to ten minutes after an assignment is submitted to display a document that supports DocViewer.
  • DocViewer annotations can be viewed in the Canvas Teacher app.
