How do I display Total Points in the Total Grade Column?

By default, Canvas displays the Total Grade in the instructor gradebook and the student's grade view as a percentage. If you use unweighted assignment groups in your course, you can display the total grade as points.

If you use weighted assignment groups, the total grade can only be displayed as a percentage.

To display the Total Grade as Points, go to Grades

In the Gradebook Total column header, click on the three dots and select "Display as Points"

This displays a Canvas Warning box.

Read the warning and click  Continue

This displays the Totals in Points.

Example:
