Canvas Access Token

This setting is required

The Canvas Access Token is a key that acts as your Canvas username and password allowing an application to access your Canvas account with the same permissions you have. For that reason, it is important to be careful with the access token and treat it just as you would a password.

To create an access token, navigate to your Canvas site and click Account on the left side and then Settings.

Scroll down to Approved Integrations and find the blue button that says “+New Access Token”. Click on it and the “New Access Token” dialogue box will appear. Fill in the purpose as “Khan2Canvas” and the expires field can be left blank. Click “Generate Token” in the bottom right of the dialogue.

A new window will appear with the access token details. Highlight and copy the access token. Make sure the entire token is selected. After you close the window, you will not be able to retrieve the token again but can regenerate a new one. If you are using multiple spreadsheets, you can use the same access token in each.

After copying the token, paste it into the corresponding field in Khan2Canvas.
