A new native-Canvas tool for viewing and annotating documents will be deployed to Canvas on Tuesday, June 20th. This tool will replace the Box and Crocodoc tools that previously powered document viewing and annotating features in Canvas.

The new Canvas document viewer and annotation tool will:

  • Support all of the document types now supported by Box/Crocodoc in Canvas
  • Provide all existing annotation options in SpeedGrader, and more
  • Be available anywhere users currently see Box or Crocodoc previews in Canvas
  • Allow for a seamless integration, with a modern interface that looks and feels like Canvas

Documents previously rendered and/or annotated using Box/Crocodoc will be available for you to view in the new tool.

For additional information, see Canvas DocViewer.
