How do I manage a user's login information in an account?
You can manually manage a user's login information in an account. You can create a new login for a user to access Canvas through your Canvas URL and also delete logins.
If you have permission, you can also edit passwords for existing user logins. If you cannot view the password field for a user's existing login, you cannot edit the user's password. For assistance with this feature, please contact your Customer Success Manger. Users need to reset their passwords through the institution's password management system.
- New or updated login information is not automatically sent to the student. Changes need to be communicated to the student. For security, login information should not be sent through email and should be communicated verbally.
- If your account manages user information through a student information system (SIS), changes will also have to be made in the SIS. Any changes made in Canvas will not be passed back to the SIS.
