How do I view an imported resource in Canvas Commons?

To view an imported resource, other than a course, navigate to the feature area (Modules, Assignments, Quizzes, Discussions, etc.) in Course Navigation.  

If the resource is still being imported, you will see a status notification when you open your course. Click on the Import Status link. 

The Current Jobs menu will display the imported resource as a Canvas Common Cartridge .imscc file. You can view the date and time the resource was imported and verify status by color: 

  • Gray: Displays a queued status 
  • Blue: Displays a running status and progress bar with time remaining 
  • Green/Orange: Displays a completed status (orange indicates an issue associated with the import; click the issueslink to view the list) 

To correct issues(s) that may have occurred with the import, you can either use the issues link next to the import or you can use the Course Navigation menu to move around the course and correct the errors.
