Tips for Success with GeorgiaVIEW

For best success with GeorgiaVIEW, remember the Tips listed below:


  • Your GaVIEW username is your CanesNet username: the entire GSW Radar email address, for example,
  • Your GaVIEW password is your CanesNet password
  • If you are a new student, you have to set up your CanesNet password using the Reset Password link located on the CanesNet Single Sign-On page or the Forgot your password? link on the GaVIEW login page
  • If you forgot or need to reset your GeorgiaVIEW password, use the above links and follow the on-screen instruction
  • Please note that if you would like to reset your GeorgiaVIEW password on the CanesNet Password Reset page, you still have to enter just the first part of you Radar email address in the “User name” field, for example: jdoe3


    • Most courses will not be available until the first day of classes.
      • If you are having problems with seeing or accessing your courses when the classes start, contact GeorgiaVIEW Help at
    • Your courses should be available the same day or the next day after your register for the courses.


    • Browsers:
      • Preferred web browsers for GeorgiaVIEW are the latest versions of Firefox and Google Chrome. Edge is supported. Internet Explorer 11 is not recommended and not supported. 
    • Clear your web browser cache and cookies regularly, especially before starting quizzes
    • For best results, especially when submitting assignments and quizzes, use a fast, reliable, hard-wired Internet connection.


    • Compose assignments using software such as Microsoft Word, then copy and paste the text or attach the document to the assignment. If you attempt to write a lengthy paper within the Dropbox tool you may time out and lose your work. Lost compositions are NOT recoverable.
    • To minimize issues while taking a quiz, be sure that you do the following:
      • Clear your browser's cache and cookies before starting a quiz
      • Close any applications that are not necessary for taking your quiz
      • Open only one browser window or session when taking a quiz
      • Complete the quiz in a timely manner to avoid timing out. Submit your work well before deadlines
      • Save each quiz response as you answer it
      • Do not try to save all responses individually at the end of the quiz. Saving too many responses at once may cause your quiz to freeze and fail to save the responses.
