What are my account settings in Commons?

As a Canvas admin, you can access account settings in Commons to manage public sharing and importing options for your account.

  • Canvas account admins are automatically made account admins in Commons.
  • Non-admins (instructors, designers, etc) will not have access to Admin Settings.
