Canvas@Illinois , Enable and Access the Multi Tool
The Multi Tool helps you quickly and efficiently set up and organize a Canvas course site. It is disabled by default but can quickly be turned on in each of your courses.
How To Enable the Multi Tool
- On the Course Navigation Menu, select Settings.
- On the Settings page, select the Navigation tab.
- On the Navigation tab, drag the Multi-Tool item to the list of available items or select the 3 dots option menu next to Multi-Tool and select the + Enable option.
- Select the Save button at the bottom of the screen.
Once enabled, the Multi-Tool will be accessible from your Course Navigation Menu. Please note that although this displays in your Course Navigation Menu as the instructor/TA, it will not be visible to students.
Authorize Access to the Multi Tool
After you have added the Multi-Tool to your course navigation menu, you can launch it by clicking on the Multi-Tool item. The first time that you use it in any of your courses, the Multi-Tool prompts you to authorize access to your account. Once you have authorized it, you can use the Multi-Tool in any of your courses. Please note, however, you will still need to add it to the navigation menu in each individual course.
