Canvas - Course Appears Under All Courses, But Not on Dashboard [UW-Madison]

In Canvas, your dashboard displays up to 20 courses, and the courses drop-down on the Canvas sidebar displays a small selection of courses. You can decide which courses appear by selecting favorites. Otherwise, go to all courses to see the rest of your courses.


Why are there courses missing from my Canvas dashboard or courses list?

Your Canvas dashboard and courses list show up to 20 courses. Canvas allows you to select favorites, so you can control which courses display in these places. Please see How do I customize my Courses list as an instructor? from Instructure, for instructions on choosing favorites.

  • If you do not choose favorites, Canvas will select courses alphabetically to display.

    • If you have more than 20 courses, some might be missing from your dashboard or courses list; even though they appear under all courses. This often happens when a new semester is activated in Canvas.

What if the course does not appear under All Courses?

If the course does not a appear under All Courses, contact the DoIT Help Desk. For contact information, see Get Help from DoIT
