If users search the partner portal and didn't find what they were looking for, they can share an integration idea.

What is the partner integration idea process?

  • Users share an integration idea and Instructure reaches out to the tool provider to inform them of the interest from the Community. Technical documentation and guidance needed to build an integration are provided.
  • Ultimately, the tool provider must decide to build the integration and make it available to Canvas users.
  • Regular communication with the tool provider allows everyone to know updates to the status of the idea, so be sure to follow the Partner Integration ideas page, along with specific ideas to track.
