Hi!  Welcome to the Canvas Community.  It's great that you reached out here!  You will need to register on Canvas as an Observer.  Did your daughter's school provide you with any information, such as special code or student ID with which to register?  

As soon as you get registered and login as an observer and link yourself to your child, please take a few minutes to set up your notification preferences in the "Profile and User Settings" area.  You want to make sure that you are notified by your daughter's teacher about her assignments, assessments, etc.

I am going to provide you with some additional information here as well:

How do I sign up for a Canvas account as a parent? 

How do I log in to Canvas as an observer? 

How do I log in to Canvas as an observer? 

How do I link a student to my user account as an observer? 

How do I accept an invitation to join a course as an observer?  

How do I set my Canvas notification preferences as an observer? 

Please reply if you need more help.  Good luck!

Hi! Welcome! Smiley Happy

Another great resource for families is the Canvas Parent app. It's awesome for quick checks and for setting custom alerts. What is the Canvas Parent app?

I create a resource that some observers find helpful, too! Clarity for Canvas Observers

If you have any follow-up questions about the Observer role or about Canvas Parent, please reply. The Community will do its best to help and to share the resources you need.
