Creating Pairing Codes as an Admin

Jump to solution

My institution has self-registration disabled which means that students and teachers cannot create pairing codes for parent observers.

Is there any way as an admin that I can create a pairing code?

Hi Elizabeth -

Yes, there is a way for you to create the pairing codes as an admin. The Pairing Code CSV is a relatively new feature in Canvas, but many schools have appreciated its addition! Please reply if you have any questions about the process.

There's also a discussion open that you may be interested in following: https://community.canvaslms.com/message/128399-re-observer-accounts-bulk-creation

I too have this question. As an Admin, I'd like a mass export of pairing codes. I understand they will expire in 7 days, but we're going to do a campaign which promotes parents creating their observer accounts within a short time frame and we would provide the pairing code to them. 

I followed your instructions, but it appears the directions were for an instructor, not an Admin. (An admin can perform these steps, but only if they go into each course)

Thanks!
