    Some of our Canvas administrators are also an instructor for a class or a student taking a class. We would like these users to use their SSO enabled login and on initial sign-on, they are a standard student/instructor user. If this user needs to perform administrative duties, they should have an option to "elevate" their privileges, where they will now have their administrative privileges and not the base instructor/student privileges. We do not like having to create a second account for these users that is not integrated with our campus SSO.
