FAQs

Do the SuiteC tools work on mobile?

The SuiteC tools will not work when using the Canvas App on a mobile device. However, there is some, albeit limited, functionality when using the browser on your mobile device, which varies depending on the mobile platform and browser. For optimal performance of these tools, it is best to use a laptop or desktop with a stable internet connection.

I only want to use one of the tools. Do I have to enable all three tools in order for one of them to work?

You do not need to enable all three tools in order for only one of them to work, however some features may not be available. For example, if you are using the Whiteboard but have the Engagement Index disabled, users will not be able to "like" an asset. If you have the Asset Library disabled, you will still be able to comment on assets uploaded via the Whiteboard, and any links or content that you add to a Whiteboard will still be stored in the Asset Library and can be viewed as individual items via the Whiteboard, even though the whole library is not visible to users.

When I go to the Navigation settings to enable the SuiteC tools, I see two of each tool. Why is that?

You may have had the SuiteC tools enabled in your course site prior to the campus-wide release on May 20, 2016 (perhaps as part of the pilot). The tools will work fine! Simply enable one of each. Your new course sites should only have one set of the tools available to be enabled.
