Canvas: Disconnecting the Group

If you no longer wish to integrate a group with Canvas, you can disconnect it like so:

  1. Log in to your account at
  2. Select More options options.png for the group, and then Disconnect From Canvas

Please note the following, however, that will also show in the warning dialog when you click 'Disconnect':

  • The Canvas Assignment will no longer work with the Group, and this connection cannot be restored. You will also lose the ability to provide feedback via SpeedGrader.
  • If you continue to use the Assignment, Flipgrid will create a new Group and Topic and connect them to that Assignment.
  • Any videos that had been recorded previously will still be in the Group on Flipgrid.

Finally, so your members can open the group afterwards:

  1. Select More options options.png for the same group, and then Edit Group
  2. Scroll down to 'Manage members' and choose how your members will join the discussion: email or domain, username, or Google Classroom - learn more about the different options here
  3. Update your group
