How do I enable Canvas permissions for admins to manage a Catalog 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 Canvas permissions for admins to manage a Catalog account?

Canvas admins are not automatically given access to the admin features in Canvas Catalog. Catalog admins can manage all course and program listings in Catalog, as well as user registration, reports, and promotions.

As the Catalog account admin, you may need to add another Canvas admin as a Catalog admin. You will need to enable the catalog permission for the admin's role at the account level. For more information about permissions, please see the Canvas Admin Guide.

Note: The catalog permission only appears in Permissions for institutions that have a Canvas Catalog account and does not apply to subaccount roles.
