Admin Account

Jump to solution

I am new to Canvas and created a new Teacher free account and able to login to the  https://canvas.instructure.com 

(as far as this account concerned, this is not associated to any other accounts)

I believe this is the super account and I am the Root user, but i don't see "Admin" option.  Just wondering how i can be a Admin user?

Free For Teachers accounts do not include an administrative capability or an admin role. For more information, please read through the account comparisons document: Canvas Account Comparisons PDF

Hi kseelam Welcome to the Canvas Community!

The simple answer is that there is no Admin level or role with a Free-for-Teachers account. Essentially, Canvas Support is your Admin.  This document gives a nice overview and links to additional resources https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-18575-do-you-need-a-free-classroom

Thanks for the quick response. It clarified.

And I started looking for the Canvas Paid options and understood that we need to become a Canvas Customer for Administration, SIS integration, etc. needs.

Also some API interfaces like SIS Imports only available or activated using the Admin. Is my understanding correct? Thanks again!

Yes, Kristina, your understanding is correct.
