I would like to add CANVAS to my PC so I can enter data more easily and accurately.  I can’t find how to on this site.  Can this be done?

  Yes, Canvas will run on your Windows PC.  To download Canvas to your Windows PC, go to and select “Windows XP+” and download and install the Canvas Windows Client.

Let us know if you have any issues,

  Unfortunately Canvas doesn’t support the Mac OS right now.

Let us know if there is anything else we can help with,

  Canvas doesn’t currently work on Windows 7 phones, but it is one of the next platforms we are targeting… so please keep on checking back.

Thank you,

Is there an older version of the apple ios canvas app as the app store says ios 5 required. As my iphone is a legacy device (iphone 3g)ios 5 is not available.

Is there any update regarding updating the mobile app to work on with either windows mobile 7 or 8?

I have a Windows 8 Tablet and Phone - how soon before you can support these devices?  I was told by the third quarter of 2013 based on need but it doesn’t sound like this is going to happen any time soon
