How do I log into the Community with my Canvas account?

Technically, anyone can view and search the community. But in order to participate, you must log in. Anyone with a Canvas account can use those credentials to log in. Below are two ways you can log into the community - via web and via mobile.

If you experience any issues with logging into the Canvas Community, try logging out of Canvas and then logging in again. If logging out and logging in again doesn't work, there may be an issue with your Canvas username and password. You may need to file a ticket with Canvas Support. For more information, visit How do I get help with Canvas?
