Hi Veronica Rinehart ~
Currently, within Canvas Parent, there is not a way to add additional students. However, you may do so using the browser! Once you have a window open and you've typed your district's address (ie: www.canvas.instructure.com), sign in using the same login information you do for Cavnas Parent.
Next, you'll need your student's pairing code. Then you can click Account then Settings then Observing. On this screen, you'll be able to link a student to your account by entering the pairing code in the box.
This will automatically update Canvas Parent too! Once in the app, you will see a drop-down menu under your student's name. You can then select which student's information you see.
I hope this is helpful!
I hope this will change. I see this causing a lot of frustration for the parents. Do you know if the app will eventually allow for additional students?
Hi Veronica - I would keep a close watch on the Release Notes: Mobile. I believe the that the Canvas Mobile Team is hoping to have a solution ready with an upcoming update to Canvas Parent.
These instructions are not entirely accurate. After logging on to the Canvas website via browser, you click Account then Observing. The option is not within the Settings page.
Based on the instructions here: How do I link a student to my user account as an observer?, the Observing tab is along the left-hand-side after opening Settings.
