How do I edit my account settings in Commons?

As an admin, you can change your account settings at any time.

Open Admin Settings

In Commons Navigation, click the Admin link.

Open Account Settings

Click the Account Settings tab.

Edit Public Commons

Edit Public Commons

By default, users will be able to share and view public content.

To disable public sharing, deselect the Allow users to share to public account setting [1]. This will remove the Public option when finding a resource in Commons and the Share with public (All Canvas users) option when sharing a resource to Commons.

To prevent users in your account from viewing publicly shared content, deselect the Allow users to view publicly shared content setting [2]. This option will hide all publicly shared resources from your Commons account.

Notes:

  • Authors of publicly shared resources will always be able to view their resource.
  • If the Allow users to view publicly shared content option is disabled, admins will not be able to view public resources and discovering users will not be able to view updates to previously imported public resources.

Edit Standards & Outcomes

Edit Standards & Outcomes

By default, Standards & Outcomes settings are enabled.

To disable users from tagging federal or state standards to shared resources in Commons, toggle the Show Common Core Standards (ELA, Math) [1] or Show State Standards [2] settings respectively.

Note: An enabled setting within Canvas toggles is indicated by a green check mark.
