In Canvas Parent 3.3, parents and observers can link to a student by using a QR code. If needed, a new Canvas account can be created for a parent or observer directly from the app.
New Account Creation
In Canvas 3.3, parents can use the QR Login link to create a new Canvas account if one does not yet exist for them.
A parent can ask the student they want to observe to create a pairing code inside the Canvas Student app. Instructions for creating the QR code are now provided for the parent as part of the Create Account page when you open the Canvas Parent app.
Scanning the QR code provided by the student from the Student App allows the parent to create a Canvas account.
The QR code includes a six-digit pairing code, which automatically displays within the Signup page. After all fields have been completed, an account will be created for the parent, and the paired student’s course will display in the Parent App Dashboard.
