We use SAML authentication (Google) for the majority of our users, students on Chromebooks. Because this method is in position 1, when students log in to their device, their Dashboard automatically loads from ...login/saml without additional clicks. This is meaningful especially because we have younger students on devices.
Parents use Observer accounts with passwords by logging in to .../login/canvas; however, they run into the problem that their Canvas notifications contain hyperlinks that route them to the SAML authentication, confusing most Observer users.
Initially I set up a Discovery URL to address the authentication issue; however, this means that every student logging on to their Chromebook now has to select that they are a student upon logging in. This creates an extra step for students, again thinking of those younger ones.
Thank you in advance!
