How do I create a Canvas Studio user as an admin?

As an admin, you can manually add users to your institution's Canvas Studio account. You can also manage user accounts and assign users with the Canvas Studio Admin role.

If you need to add a specific user to Studio, especially as an admin, you should manually create their account in Canvas Studio.

If your institution uses the Canvas Studio LTI in Canvas, the first time a user accesses Studio in Canvas, Studio automatically creates an account, adds the user in the Studio users list, and assigns them a Studio role based on their user role in Canvas.

When you add a user to your Studio account, the user receives an email invitation to create a password to access your institution's Canvas Studio site.

Note: Currently once you create a user, you cannot remove the user from the Studio account.
