How do I upload a file from Microsoft Office 365 as an assignment submission?

If your course has enabled Microsoft Office 365, you can upload a file from your Microsoft OneDrive for an assignment.

Like other file upload submissions, files uploaded from Office 365 are uploaded into your Canvas user files submissions folder.

Canvas accepts Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Excel, and PDF types.

Notes:

  • If the Office 365 tab is not available in your submission, your institution has not enabled this feature.
  • Canvas will require you to authorize access to your OneDrive account.
  • In Office 365 assignments, you can only submit one file for your submission.
  • When Office 365 files are uploaded as a submission, later changes made to the file in OneDrive will not be updated in the submission.
  • If enabled in your account, Canvas plays a celebration animation when you submit an assignment on time. However, if you prefer, you can disable this feature option in your user settings.
  • If the assignment you are accessing displays differently, your assignment may be using the Assignment Enhancements feature option. Please view this guide for more information.
