  1. Click on the template you want to use.
  2. Select "Import/Download".

Update to a new version

If you have a Canvas room that already uses a template, you will be informed that updates to the template are available when you enter Canvas Commons. You see it in an information box in Commons and you can also see how many templates that have been updated by the number after the "Updates" tab.

To update the Canvas rooms:

  1. Go to the "Updates" tab. There you will see a list of all the templates you use that have been updated.
  2. If you use the template only in one room: click "Update" to update to the new version, or "Dismiss" to skip the update.
  3. If you have several rooms with the same template: check the checkbox for the rooms and click "Update selected" to update to the new version, or "Dismiss selected" to skip the update.
