How do I add an admin to an account?
You can add a user as an admin to an account in Settings.
When you assign a user as an admin in the root account, that user has all privileges in any sub-account. You might consider assigning users as admins only in the sub-account for which they are responsible.
Once you add a user, if they already have a profile in Canvas, they will receive an email notifying them that they are now an admin for the account. If an added user does not already have a profile, they will receive an email with a link to create a profile and access the account.
- To add a user as an admin, you must assign the user to an account role. Before adding a user, ensure that you have created the necessary account-level role.
- Your administrative user list includes the Conditional Release API, which is currently included in all accounts for MasteryPaths. The API user will be removed from the list in a future release.
