How do I remove Canvas Commons from my institution's Canvas account as an admin?

As a Canvas admin, you can remove the Canvas Commons app from your account if needed. Removing Canvas Commons from your institution's Canvas account removes Commons from all app placements in the account.

Alternatively, if you don't want to remove Canvas Commons from your account, you can manage Commons app placements for the account. App placements determine where an app can be seen and used in Canvas.
