Possible to revise log in language for signing into Canvas Community?

When trying to log into the Canvas Community, many of our users have encountered this confusing message:

"To log in to Canvas Community you need to first log in to Canvas.

We were unfortunately unable to automatically figure out the URL for your login page for you."

And then in the drop-down that accompanies this message, the user can select our school's Canvas URL,, and complete logging into the Community.

If possible, it would be helpful to revise the message to something like:

"To log in to Canvas Community you need to first log in to your organization's instance of Canvas."

Thank you so much for your time and consideration.

irishb, as this is a question/comment about how the Canvas Community functions rather than a question about the Canvas LMS, I'm going to move it to the Meta Community Group​, which is where we discuss all-things-Community. If you're not yet a member of the group, please take a moment to join to help us make the Community better. Smiley Happy
