How do I add an account-level role in the Permissions page?

You can create account-level roles in Canvas.

Account roles are granted to each Canvas admin and define the type of access each admin has in the account. You can create custom account-level roles depending on the needs of your institution.

Once a role is created, you can add administrative users and manage account-level permissions.
