How do I view and manage other Canvas Studio account groups as an admin?

As a Studio admin, you can view a list of all other groups in your institution's Studio account in your Studio Settings Groups page. Even if you are not a member of a group, as an admin, you can manage any group, including editing group names, managing the group member list and member roles, and deleting groups.

You can also view a list of all your groups. Learn more about viewing your groups.

The Other Groups List displays the following information:
