Recently Canvas has introduced a Notes column in the Gradebook.  To activate the Notes column, go to your Gradebook and select the Gear right above student names. The last item on the list should say 'Show Notes column' The Notes column will appear as the third column, right before the grade columns.

I have already discovered an incredibly useful way to employ this tool. For the final project in AR100 I require students to email their subject about 4 weeks before the project is due. I don't grade this specifically but the submission or lack thereof does affect their final score. Instead of scrounging through my emails for this info, I now record the subject and date of email in the Notes column
