Parents/Observers Logging Into Canvas

How do your parents login to Canvas?  Is there a way that the parents can login in one time and see all of their children who are in the school at one time?  Currently, each parent logs in with an SIS-ID (that we provide them with) or an email address and they can only see one child.  A parent has to have a separate account for each child using Canvas, and it's a bit frustrating for them.  Is there any way that we can make this experience for them less complicated?

 

Thanks.

Parents who have an Observer account can go to their Settings --> Observing and add additional students using the paring codes. These codes are generated by the student.

Is there any way that we can set this up in advance by SIS import?
