Hi, I am requesting to get a acme sandbox. There have been multiple posts about this in the community and I would like to get one.

What feels like forever now, you could visit the Instructure main Canvas page and sign up for a 14-day trial-instance of Canvas. It would auto generate a Canvas instance, and provide you with admin access to https://[name-generated-based-on-company-name-filled-in-on-form].acme.instructure.com/ (which is where the 'acme' comes from).

That service is no longer provided as of 2018/2019, so the OP must have been looking at very old posts, and you now simply have to create a Free For Teacher instance @ https://www.instructure.com/canvas/try-canvas

The other option is to contact Canvas to become a partner, pay the partner license fee, and you'll get a https://[business-name]-test.instructure.com/ environment with full Admin access to develop, test, demo, and anything needed with, and contact Canvas Support for technical questions.

@rraman1 Would you please provide links to some of the posts about "acme sandbox"? This isn't a term that is immediately familiar to us, and we'd like to be able to use the context to address your post and the others as well. Thanks.

@realRoChess Thanks for providing that history! I remember that quite some time ago Instructure offered a 14-day trial of a full Canvas instance including admin privileges, but I didn't realize that the word "acme" was part of the URL for the trial account.

@rraman1 This should answer your question!

A reminder that anyone who is interested in purchasing a Canvas instance can click on the Get a demo button on this page to request a meetup with our sales team.

I wish this would come back

@rraman1 If you have the links referencing "acme" handy, we'd still like to have them so we can update them with the current process for requesting a demo.
