The Help Menu assists users in your institution by displaying a list of Canvas help resources. Depending on their role, users can view up to eight default help options. As an admin, you can reorder or hide default links in the Help menu. You can also add custom help links for your institution and choose if they should be available to all users or specific user roles. You can highlight links by adding a New label to a link or by featuring the link in the Help menu.
You can also change the Help icon and text that displays throughout Canvas.
This lesson shows how to access the Help Menu Options directly from the Global Navigation Menu. However, you can also access the Help menu options in Account Settings.
In Global Navigation, click the Help Menu link , then click the Customize this menu link .
In the Settings tab, locate the Help menu options section.
By default, the Canvas Help menu text displays as Help. To change the text, enter the new name in the text field.
The name of the Help menu displays in Global Navigation, the footer of the login page, and the top menu bar in SpeedGrader. The name should be no more than 30 characters.
By default, the Help navigation icon displays as a question mark. To change the navigation icon, select another icon from the included icon set. The selected icon displays a square border.
The navigation icon currently only displays in Global Navigation. To best assist your account users, the navigation icon should compliment the name of the Help menu.
Click the Update Settings button.
