    How do I add a category to a catalog?

    When managing catalog categories, you can create categories for your catalog and subcatalogs. Categories are created from tags added to course or program listings, as well as subcatalog names.

    Any categories in the parent catalog can automatically apply to subcatalogs. However, you can choose to create your own categories for a subcatalog.

    • When viewing the parent catalog, the subcatalog list displays all subcatalogs in the account.
    • When viewing a subcatalog and inheriting categories is disabled, the subcatalog list is filtered to only show subcatalogs that descend directly from the subcatalog you are viewing.
    • The tags list always shows tags from all subcatalogs across the entire account.

     

    Note: In subcatalogs, you cannot add a new category if the subcatalog is inheriting categories from another catalog.

  • Canvas Catalog lets you add cascading style sheet (CSS), JavaScript (JS), or Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) files to apply to all pages in your catalogs. You can copy the source code directly into the fields, or you can paste the URL to the external file. Host your files on a secure site, otherwise they may break when trying to load. HTML/CSS can also be used to customize a program certificate or course certificate.

    You can also upload a catalog header logo and catalog badge logo, as well as a browser favicon. For details and specifications, please view the Canvas Catalog Logo Guidelines PDF.

     

    Note: Unless a subaccount specifies its own logo/favicon, logos/favicons uploaded in the parent account apply to all sub-accounts.

  • When creating or managing a catalog, you can create custom user defined fields. These fields allow you to customize your user registration beyond the default fields of Full Name and Email. Information in user defined fields can only be collected as part of new user registrations; the fields do not display when existing users enroll in a course.

    Any user defined fields in the parent catalog can automatically apply to subcatalogs. However, you can choose to create your own custom user defined fields for a subcatalog.

    Note: In subcatalogs, you cannot add a new field if the subcatalog is inheriting user defined fields from another catalog.

  • You can add subcatalogs in Canvas Catalog by creating a new catalog. Your domain catalog links your account in Canvas with your catalog home page and is created for you as part of the catalog setup process. Subcatalogs are linked to your domain catalog and allow you to associate specific listings for a department, organization, or team. Subcatalogs can be customized with their own branding and settings.

    By default, subcatalog listings are shown in the parent catalog as well as the subcatalog's individual URL path. However, subcatalogs can also be made private, where subcatalog listings are not shown in the parent catalog.

    Once you have created a subcatalog, you can manage your catalogs at any time to add customization options.

    Note: You cannot delete a subcatalog once it has been created.
