Maintenance Window - Systems Unavailable
Canvas is managed by Instructure and has their own timeline for update and fixes.
Periodically functionality will be added, changed, or removed in Canvas. Announcements are made in Release Notes / Calendar on an ongoing basis. Other changes may not be directly related to Canvas, such as browser updates, which are not associated with Canvas releases.
Since Canvas is cloud based, Cal Poly does not house it on any of our campus computers. You can view Instructure's System Status and Incidents reports.

Maintenance Windows for Canvas and 3rd Party Tools
There are times that software will not be available due to update or patches that Cal Poly will not be able to change since these dates are managed by other companies.
May 1, 2020: 1:00am - 2:00am MST - Canvas Update
Performing maintenance for our Google Apps and Office 365 LTIs, which will last for up to 1 hour. If you have one of these tools installed in your account you may be unable to access that tool for the duration of this maintenance.
May 2, 2020: 8am - Noon PST - TurnItIn
Requires an emergency maintenance window as a pre-emptive measure to avoid rescheduled maintenance work being carried out by a third-party network provider during the week. During this time, there may be an interruption to our services. We are planning for this work to only take the first two hours of this window, however we ask that you plan for the full duration. Customers using Turnitin through the following services will encounter a service outage and will have to retry their submissions after this time.
