Organizing Files

Files is one of the simplest and yet most challenging areas of Canvas. Files is a repository of sorts for your course site. Anything that you upload to your course site ends up in Files, and in turn, you can place Files in Modules, Assignments, Pages, and other areas in your site.

Helpful Hints

  • Folders and files are in alphabetical order and cannot be rearranged. For this reason, we often recommend that Files act as a store room for course files that are placed elsewhere in the site, such as Modules, for students.
  • You can only move files within the right pane or from the right pane to the left pane.
