As an admin, you can view and manage sub-accounts in Canvas. Sub-accounts help establish your account's hierarchical structure and house courses and enrollments.
All of your institution’s sub-accounts are located within the root account. However, sub-accounts can include additional nested sub-accounts, and sub-account admins can view a list of all the sub-accounts in their account.
Sub-accounts can be created and managed manually or via SIS upload. Additionally, sub-accounts created via API or SIS upload retain the identifiers given in the original source. You can edit sub-account names to make them easier to find within Canvas.
To edit the name of a sub-account, click the Edit icon . Edit the name of the sub-account by typing in the name field. To save your changes, press the Return key (on a Mac) or Enter key (on a PC) on your keyboard.
To delete a sub-account, click the Delete icon .
Note: Sub-accounts that contain courses cannot be deleted.
Confirm Sub-Account Deletion
When you delete a sub-account, a pop-up window will appear in your browser. Click the OK button.
