Activating Canvas for your organization**

For administrators with LMS integrations, a premium feature through the Remind plan! To learn more, please contact your Remind account manager or Remind support.

In order for your teachers and staff members to have access to Canvas, you must first enable the feature from your administrator dashboard. Once you have activated Canvas, your teachers will then need to connect their Remind account to Canvas.
