How do I download data that I submitted from Canvas on my mobile device?

Using Canvas, you can enter data into an app on your device. Once all the data has been entered, you can submit it. It is then sent and stored on Canvas servers and can be accessed by logging into the Canvas website. 

View, print, download or export your submissions:

Follow these steps:
1. Log onto the Canvas website at
2. Under My Home click the Submissions tab to view your list of submissions.

From here you will see:

  • A list of the apps with submissions
  • The number of submissions
  • The date and time of the last submission

Submission Export

On the submissions screen, you can export your submitted data as a Comma Seperated Values (CSV) file which can be opened with Excel by clicking Export. From there you can choose the version and time period of the submissions that you want the data from.

Clicking on the app name will list the individual submissions for that App. This list will display the following information about each individual submission:

  • Submission Date and Time
  • Submitter
  • Submission ID
  • App Name

This list will also give you the ability to print the submission, view it online or download it as a PDF.


In addition, all of the data hosted by Canvas can also be accessed via the Canvas Webservices API. To see the FAQ regarding the Canvas webservices, click here.
