Sub Account Act As

Jump to solution

Currently, the "act as" feature is limited to Canvas Admin. Is there a way for the feature to be given to the subaccount admin? We want to provide building leaders the ability to ac as teachers/students in their spaces without having to provide complete access to the entire county. 

I am a Canvas District Administrator

@johnson_ijeoma There is a workaround that works pretty well.  Create a role at your root account that only has the act as permission. You then also assign your sub-account admins the act as permission as well as the sub-account role you created.  We do this and so far have not had any issues.

Hope this helps!
