How do I view and manage my institution's Canvas SchoolTool rostering schedules?
If your institution has configured an integration with Canvas and SchoolTool, you can view your institution's SchoolTool sync schedule in the SIS Integration page. Any rostering updates made in SchoolTool within the defined interval, including changes to enrollments and courses, are reflected in Canvas after a completed sync. You can also pause rostering syncs from SchoolTool to Canvas.
Your institution's SIS sync schedules are configured during Canvas SIS integration implementation. To make changes to your sync schedules, or to add scheduled syncs, contact the Instructure SIS Support Team.
In Global Navigation, click the Admin link , then click the name of the account .
Open SIS Integration
In the Account Navigation menu, click the SIS Integration link.

After pausing a sync, please contact the Instructure SIS Support Team to resolve any sync issues.
