Canvas@Illinois, What are Enhanced Gradebook Filters?

This article describes how instructors and teaching assistants can use Enhanced Gradebook Filters to customize their gradebook view to filter by different criteria and save frequent filtering settings.


Canvas offers multiple, customizable views of the gradebook. Enhanced Gradebook Filters allows you to select, manage, and save filter types based on multiple criteria within the gradebook.
