Many institutions create the same type of account-level roles. This document talks about the most commonly used account-level roles in Canvas and their permissions. If you need help customizing your account-level roles, please contact your Customer Success Manager. Learn how to create account-level roles.

 

To learn more details about any of these account permissions, view the Account Permissions PDF.
