How do I view a sub-account?

You can view a list of your account's sub-accounts in Canvas. Sub-accounts are located within a root account. Additionally, sub-accounts can include additional nested sub-accounts.

Note: Each account will automatically include a sub-account called Manually-Created Courses that manages multiple backend processes for Canvas and cannot be deleted.
