Return to page after authentication


Our small team is one week in to building an app using the canvas template and appreciating the quick start it provides, thanks Canvas team.

As a result, we also have a couple of questions, here’s one:

It looks like Canvas supports being able to redirect back to a specific page after logon, but we cant find the exact documentation.
