  • As an admin user, your user menu allows you to manage settings for your institution's Arc account. Currently, admin settings can only be managed in your institution's Arc site outside of Canvas.

  • If you receive an email welcoming you to Arc, you need to verify your account by setting up a password. This password is used to access a specific Arc site separate from Canvas. When you accept the account invitation, the login page shows the URL you should use to manage and access Arc.

    Most commonly, email invitations are only sent to users who are invited to Arc as admins. Currently Arc users can only be managed by admins in the institution's Arc site.

    The password you create for your Arc site currently does not sync with your Canvas login, so for best results, create the same password for Arc that you use for Canvas. If you choose a different password, you can reset your password in your Arc site at any time using the password reset link.

    Except for the Arc site user menu, Arc sites display the same content as found in an Arc account.

  • You can get help with Canvas by using the Help menu. Depending on your user role, the Help menu generates a list of resources to help you with Canvas. Canvas displays links according to roles in all enrollments; for instance, if you are a student who had one courses with an instructor-based role, the Help menu will show you links available to students and instructors.

    This lesson outlines the five default help links that may be included in the Help menu for your institution.

    Note: Depending on your institution, the Help menu may not be available.

  • If your institution allows you to manage a catalog or subcatalog, you can view the catalog or subcatalog from the Catalog admin menu.

    Although your admin access may be limited to a specific catalog or subcatalog, Catalog functionality is the same as given to full Catalog admins.

  • You can add administrative users to a Canvas account in Account Settings. When you assign a user as an admin in the top-level account, that user has essentially all privileges in any sub-account in Canvas.

    Once you add users as admins, if the users already have a profile in Canvas, they will receive an email notifying them that they are now an admin for the account. If the users do not already have a profile, they will receive an email with a link to create a profile and access the account.

    If you want to give a Canvas user rights to manage a catalog but not allow full admin access, you can add a user as a subcatalog admin directly in your Catalog account instead.

    Notes:

    • When adding an administrative user, you must assign the user to an account role. Before adding a user, ensure that you have created the necessary account-level role.
    • Your administrative user list includes the Catalog API, which is currently included in all Catalog accounts.
