As an admin user, you can manage users in your institution's Canvas Studio account. Currently, users can only be managed in your institution's Studio site outside of Canvas.

Users are either added to Studio directly as a new user (most commonly admins) or added automatically to the user list when they access Studio links or content in Canvas.

Currently you cannot remove users from the Studio account.

Open Studio URL

In a browser window, enter the URL of your Studio account.

In the Email field [1], enter your email address. This is the email address where you received your invitation to create an Studio password.

In the Password field [2], enter your password. If you forgot your password, click the Forgot password? link [3].

Click the Sign In button [4].

View User Information

You can view a user's full name [1], display name [2], email address [3], and admin status [4].

Note: Studio is not dependent on email addresses. If an institution is using a single sign-on (SSO) authentication system that does not rely on email addresses, some users who only access Studio directly through Canvas may not display an associated email address.

Manage Users

  Manage Users

To edit information for an existing user, click the Edit button.

Currently you cannot remove a user from your account.

Edit User

  Edit User

Editing a user allows you to change the user's name [1], display name [2], and email address [3] as shown for the user's Studio account.

Editing user fields does not affect a user's Canvas account.

You can also change a user's access to or from Admin status [4], though the user will not be notified about the change.

Click the Save button [5].

Note: If you edit a user to become an admin, the user will not receive an email to create a password. You will have to notify the user manually and provide the Studio site URL. To access the Studio site, the user can use the password reset link from the Studio site login page.
