How can I submit a Taskstream web folio to a Canvas assignment?

Note:
As of October 1, 2017, Taskstream is only available to students enrolled on the IUPUI campus and in the Schools of Education on the Bloomington, South Bend, and Southeast campuses.

If you've been asked to create a Taskstream web folio for one of your classes, your instructor may also require you to provide the URL for your web folio as the submission to a Canvas assignment. Before you can do this, you first have to publish your web folio in Taskstream. Once you've published your web folio, you can provide the folio URL (and optional password) as a Canvas assignment submission. See below for instructions.

Important:
Make sure you don't share the URL for the "preview" version of your web folio with others. Preview links expire after a short period of time and are not meant to be used for sharing.
