  1. Log onto MyWalden portal.
  2. Go into your Canvas doctoral capstone course.
  3. In Course Content, click on “Capstone Progress Dashboard & MyDR”.


  1. Click on “Load Capstone Progress Dashboard & MyDR in a new window”.
  2. Click on “My Doctoral Research (MyDR)” link.
  3. From the My Doctoral Research landing page, scroll down to Resources & Forms section and click the link for “Taskstream


Remember: You must have both your chairperson and your second member confirmed in order to access MyDR. If you do not have both members confirmed and you are not registered for your capstone course, you will not have access to MyDR. 


Please confirm that MyDR has launched for your program.  If it has launched, you might not have access for the following reasons:

  • You do not have a complete committee (identified chair and second member).  Please work with OSRA for the next steps needed to complete your committee configuration.
  • You have an inactive status with the university.  Please work with your academic advisor to resolve this. You can reach your advisor by e-mailing [email protected]
  • You were not migrated into the MyDR system.  Students who were at or beyond the Form and Style review prior to MyDR launching for your program will not use MyDR.

If all of the above issues have been resolved, then it is a technical issue with the link.
