Uninstall redirect link

Jump to solution

I tried to create a redirect link to a Teams group, but that failed to work. Now I can't seem to uninstall the redirect link. Help?

Since each Redirect link makes a unique item in the Course Navigation, the easiest way to remove the link you no longer need is to hide it and disable it. This lesson will show you: How do I manage Course Navigation links?

If you're wanting to completely remove the redirect you set up, Go to Settings, Apps tab, click View App Configurations.  Your redirects will each have a little settings icon...you can either edit the settings from there or delete it completely.

This thread has been useful for reading about deleting Redirect items. However, I do not have "edit" via the settings cog. When I click it, the message reads, " Placements". That message then leads to a window with "App placements/Course navigation/Assignment & Link Selection". Does this sound as though that function is locked by my institution or am I missing something? Thank you.

Hi @linda_brown1 ...

You might want to have a chat with your school's local Canvas administrator.  They may have added the Redirect Tool at your school's Canvas account level rather than at the course level.  I think the way it works is on your installed apps screen, if you see the "i" icon next to the name of an app, that means it's usually installed at an account or sub-account level, and you cannot delete it from your course.  But, if instead you see the cog wheel/gear icon, then that external tool LTI has been added at the course level, and you could delete it from your course.

Check out the section on "View Account-Level Apps" and "Manage Course-Level Apps".

I hope this will help a bit, Linda.

Thanks so much, Chofer. I think my situation fits somewhere in between the two that you have kindly described. To investigate a bit further, I went back to a previous redirect in another course and can see the cog/edit. So I fear it may have been locked down (excuse the expression) by our admin. If I learn anything new, I'll update on this page. Cheers, Linda
