Canvas Parent App is now useless to us. We are a K-12 district with 160,000+ students. As a district, we decided not to open up parent/observer accounts or let anyone create an account in our instance from the default /login/canvas. Even if we did open that up, our instance is authenticated by our single-sign-on platform which would make it impossible for parents to pass through.

Thumbs down on the upgrade.
