Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you continue to experience an issue with any method of submitting a help request to Canvas Support.

Canvas Status Update
Users still unable to contact Canvas Support via email, works intermittently - 10/20/14
Zendesk is continuing to experience an issue with email processing causing issues with reaching Canvas Support via email.

We’re continuing to investigate the problem with Zendesk and will provide more information in the next 30 minutes.

Phone lines, webform help submissions and LiveChat support (for schools with chat support) remain functional; however, email support remains down. We’re continuing to investigate the problem with Zendesk and will provide more information in the next 30 minutes.

Canvas Status Update: Request timeouts and severe slowness 10-15-14
Under Investigation

1:40
Since the release this morning, we’ve seen reports from some Chrome users that they’re unable to view discussion responses, see a list of files in a course’s Files section, edit / view pages, etc. In every case reported to us so far, clearing browser cache once has solved the problem entirely, for all Canvas content. The issue only seems to affect some Chrome users, not all. It does not seem to matter which version of Chrome the user is using.

Please encourage users who contact you with these symptoms (Chrome, can’t see certain content) to try clearing their cache. We’ve updated the greeting message on our phone lines to suggest this tip to callers, too.

We’ve reported this problem to our engineering team. Ideally, they’ll be able to push a global fix—but we haven’t identified a root cause yet, and this might prove to be an issue that can’t be addressed for all users from here. If we learn of cases where clearing cache does *not* solve this problem, we’ll provide an update right away.


1:58
Canvas response times have returned to normal levels and all should be functional again for your users. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused.  Please contact us if you are continuing to experience any issues.


We just became aware of an issue that is affecting many Canvas users, causing timeouts and lack of response to requests. We’re investigating the problem and will provide more information in the next 15 minutes.
