How do I access my User Settings?

Personal settings differ from course settings.

If you want to view a video about personal settings, you can watch Settings - Personal Settings and Profile Picture (Video).

Locate Settings Link

By clicking on the Settings link in the Help Corner of the Canvas interface, users can

  • add a Profile picture
  • change their display name
  • adjust Notification Preferences
  • upload Files
  • create ePortfolios
  • adjust user settings

Note: Your institution may restrict one or more of these options.
