Passwords? Very new, need help

This may be a silly question, but how do I change a user's password?  Is there a default password that Canvas uses when it creates accounts from a SIS?  I created the accounts, but need some guidance on how to help my teachers get into the system.

TIA!

If you will go to that person's profile, then click on the pencil (edit) icon for the box labeled Login Information, you can change a SIS-created password.

@misskweaver ...

The response from @amanda_hood is right on track.  I wanted to also provide a link to the Guide which will walk you through the same steps: How do I manage a user's login information in an account?.  Scroll down to the section on "Edit Login", and that's where you'll find info on user passwords.

I hope this extra bit of information will be of help to you.  Take care, stay safe, and be well.
