  5. For Submission Type, select External Tool from the dropdown.
  6. Select Find to find Turnitin and select the Select button.
  7. The name of the Turnitin external tool may vary depending on the Canvas environment. Check with your Canvas administrator if you are unsure of which Tool is the correct one for Turnitin.
