How do I enable web services for an account?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I enable web services for an account?

Third-party integrations can be enabled as web services for an entire Canvas account.

Web services can be used to extend the functionality of a user's Canvas profile. For example, if a user connects their Twitter account to their Canvas user profile, Canvas can send that user private Twitter messages about new assignments, quizzes, messages, etc. The user can also configure their notification settings in their Notification Settings.

Note: By default, sub-account admins cannot enable web services.

In the Enabled Web Services section, check the boxes of the web services you'd like to enable.

Note: If the Google Apps LTI has been enabled for your entire institution, you do not need to enable the Google Drive web service for your students.
