  New Features



Observer Authentication

Parent Login

The Canvas Parent app allows parents to authenticate with Canvas observer credentials. After tapping the Log in with Canvas link in the Canvas Parent login page, parents are prompted to enter their Canvas observer account information. Upon successful login, parents will need to manually add students in the app.



Parents who have an observer account but who have already registered with Canvas Parent can use either account. To use their observer account, parents need to log out of the app and then log in using their Canvas credentials.



Help Options (iOS devices)

In the Canvas Parent app for iOS, Help options are included in the Settings page. In the Help options, you can access the Canvas Help Guides, share how much you love the app, report a problem with the app, request a feature in the app, and view the list of open source components that are used in the app.
