How do I manage my catalogs?

As a Canvas Catalog admin, you can manage all of your catalogs and view an overall status on the Managed Catalogs page. Each catalog has its own settings and customization options.

There are two types of catalogs:

  • A root catalog links your account in Canvas with your Catalog home page and is created for you as part of the Catalog setup process.
  • A subcatalog can be based either on a domain or a specific path URL where you can associate and brand specific listings for a department, organization, or team.

Managing your catalogs allows you to add subcatalogs, edit catalog settings, or delete catalogs.
