What are Groups in Canvas Badges?

The Groups feature in Pathways is used to organize badge recipients into different segments or cohorts, so that they can be tracked along a Learning Pathway.

View Groups Setup

Once a group has been created, users can then add badges, subscribe to Pathways, view learner progress and manage the group.


  • Groups may be subscribed to more than one pathway and any number of groups can be subscribed to the same pathway.
  • You must create and publish a Pathway prior to subscribing a group.
