How do I allow my faculty to change their profiles?

Jump to solution

It appears that our new Canvas account defaults to NOT allowing users to change their profile pic. I need to change this. Where do I go to do so?

Go to Admin > Settings and enable the User Avatars Checkbox.

Here is a lesson from the Canvas Admin Guide that provides additional information: How do I set details for an account?  The information is in the "View Features" section about half-way through the page.

Note this enables it for all users, not just faculty. Faculty is a course-level role and a faculty in one place may be a student in another.

If you want them to maintain profiles (not just the pictures), there's a note in that linked page about how to do that.
