  • You can add administrative users to a Canvas account in Account Settings. When you assign a user as an admin in the top-level account, that user has essentially all privileges in any sub-account in Canvas.

    Once you add users as admins, if the users already have a profile in Canvas, they will receive an email notifying them that they are now an admin for the account. If the users do not already have a profile, they will receive an email with a link to create a profile and access the account.

    If you want to give a Canvas user rights to manage a catalog but not allow full admin access, you can add a user as a subcatalog admin directly in your Catalog account instead.


    • When adding an administrative user, you must assign the user to an account role. Before adding a user, ensure that you have created the necessary account-level role.
    • Your administrative user list includes the Catalog API, which is currently included in all Catalog accounts.

  • In Catalog, you can view a transcript of all your enrollment information as displayed in your In Progress and Completed Catalog tabs. If a program has multiple programs, the transcript only shows the first subprogram.

    Programs count as one item; no course requirements are included in the total enrollment count. If an enrolled date is not set, the course has not been started or the enrollment date is unavailable. Transcripts also display credits earned as well as credits available to earn (when an enrollment is completed).

  • You can leave text or video comments on student assignments in SpeedGrader. Comments can be added before or after grading a submission.

  • Canvas lets you view Quizzes from your mobile device. For each quiz, you can view the details of the quiz including the due date, points, number of questions, the time limit, and number of allowed attempts.

    The Canvas app natively supports quizzes that contain Essay, Multiple Choice, Multiple Answer, Fill in the Blank, Matching, Numeric, or True/False questions. Any quizzes that do not contain supported question types are redirected to the web version of Canvas. Additionally, currently the app does not support one-question-at-a-time quizzes, quizzes with passcode restrictions, or quizzes with IP address restrictions.

    The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.

    Note: The Course Navigation menu matches the browser version of your Canvas course. If you are a student and Quizzes is not available in Course Navigation, it will also be hidden from view in the app.
