  • When creating or managing a catalog, you can create custom user defined fields. These fields allow you to customize your user registration beyond the default fields of Full Name and Email. Information in user defined fields can only be collected as part of new user registrations; the fields do not display when existing users enroll in a course.

    Any user defined fields in the parent catalog can automatically apply to subcatalogs. However, you can choose to create your own custom user defined fields for a subcatalog.

    Note: In subcatalogs, you cannot add a new field if the subcatalog is inheriting user defined fields from another catalog.

    How do I manage my catalogs?

    You can manage all of your catalogs and view an overall status on the Managed Catalogs page. Each catalog has its own settings and customization options.

    There are two types of catalogs: domain catalogs and subcatalogs. A domain catalog links your account in Canvas with your catalog home page and is created for you as part of the catalog setup process. A subcatalog creates a specific path URL where you can associate and brand specific listings for a department, organization, or team.

    Managing your catalogs allows you to add subcatalogs, manage user defined fields, customize catalogs, and manage categories.
