Have you searched the partner portal and not found what you’re looking for?  Well, then it’s time to share an integration idea.  


What is the partner integration idea process?

  • You share an integration idea, and we’ll reach out to the tool provider to inform them of the interest from the Community. We’ll also provide them with the technical documentation and guidance needed to build an integration.
  • Ultimately, the tool provider must decide to build the integration and make it available to Canvas users.  
  • We’ll check in with the tool provider regularly and update the status of your idea, so be sure to follow  the Partner Integration ideas page, along with specific ideas you want to track!



How do I share an integration idea?

First, search existing integration ideas.  If you don't find what you're looking for, share a new integration idea. 


To create a new integration idea, visit the Partner Integration ideas page, click the Share a New Integration Idea button, and complete the following 4 steps:


  1. Add a Title: Put the name of the organization and the tool that you would like to see integrated
  2. Provide Details:  "As a [role], I would like an integration with [tool], so that I can..."
    • What role (teacher, student, admin) would use this integration?
    • How would the integration be used?
    • Why is the integration important?
    • What contacts do you have for the tool provider?
  3. Add Tags: Help others can easily find and support your integration idea. Use defined Official tags or add your own!
  4. Categorize: Check the Partner Integration category.


Complete your submission by clicking the Create Idea button.



What are the process stages?
