The long-awaited Notes column is now available in the Canvas gradebook. The Notes column is yours and yours alone — you decide whether or not to use it and what to store there, and it is not visible to students.
To show the Notes column in the Gradebook, click the Gear icon in the Gradebook drop-down menu and select the Show Notes Column link. When the column is shown, Gear icon drop-down option will change to Hide Notes Column.
To make a comment in the notes, click the note field for the appropriate student and type into the text box. Click the Save button to save your note. The note field allows up to 255 characters.
For more about the Notes column, see the Canvas Instructor Guide.
