How do I select personal pronouns in my user account as an observer?

If enabled by your student's school, you can select personal pronouns to add to your user account. Personal pronouns display after your name in various areas in Canvas, including:

  • Inbox
  • People Page
  • User Navigation Menu
  • User Profile Page
  • User Settings Page

Notes:

  • If you cannot view pronouns in your User Settings, your student's school has not enabled this feature.
  • LTI tools, such as New Quizzes and Analytics, do not currently support displaying pronouns.
