At the core of proHelp is an advanced system that is able to identify DOM objects at multiple node levels that’s simple and reliable. What this means is, proHelp can offer you access to this system with no coding experience required. Once you’ve identified what you need your Custom Script to do, proHelp will work with you to test and implement the change into your Canvas environment.
Inject a Custom Help Item
Custom help markers can be inserted anywhere within the LMS. These markers can have a unique icon, open a pop-up box with specific information with text and links. For example, you may wish to place a unique ‘warning’ marker at a particular location advising teachers or students on critical instructions. You may want to remind teachers of an institutional policy when building their syllabus. Or maybe you have your own institutional help you want to point teachers and students to.
Hide or Remove Items from Page
proHelp offers additional tools to hide entire blocks or individual elements in Canvas. Hiding an item means it’s still there, but invisible to the user and the layout of the page does not change at all. If removed, the page layout can sometimes change. This tool is particularly useful if you need to hide a specific area, such as a Setting or Button that you don’t want students or teachers to touch.
Replace Items on Page
In some cases, it’s useful to replace an entire block with another item, such as a button. proHelp’s multi-layer approach allows the precise insertion and replacement of elements. This is handy to replace links or buttons to your own pages or tools.
Add a new Item to a Page
proHelp can insert an item in any location within the LMS. For example, you may want a custom button in a menu item, or a set of unique icons that help create your own unique brand in the LMS.
