How do I manage external app placements for an account?

You can manage placements for an external app in your account. Placements determine where an app can be seen and used in Canvas.

When managing app placements, placements can be set to active or inactive. Active placements display in the Canvas feature area listed in the App Placements menu. Inactive placements are removed from the Canvas feature area listed in the App Placements menu.
