Depending on the institution, Canvas users can contact Canvas Support through the Help menu in Canvas Global Navigation on the web or the Help option in the User Menu from one of the Canvas mobile apps. Canvas support agents are trained to assist all Canvas user roles, including students, instructors, and observers/parents/caregivers.
Institutions can customize their Help Menu with the help resources they want their users to use, as well as by role. Canvas documentation displays the default menu options, but what options display in Canvas for you may be different from the screenshots shown in the reference lessons below.
