You can add administrative users to an account in your Settings.

When you assign a user as an admin in the top-level account, that user has essentially all privileges in any sub-account. You might consider assigning users as admins only in the sub-account they are responsible for.

Once you add users, 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.

Notes:

  • 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 Conditional Release API, which is currently included in all accounts for MasteryPaths. The API user will be removed from the list in a future release.
