Disconnect your group from Canvas


If you no longer want to integrate a group with Canvas, you're able to disconnect the group from Canvas any time. Before you disconnect a group from Canvas, make sure you understand what happens to the assignment and group: 

  • The assignment and the ability to provide feedback through SpeedGrader no longer works for the group.
  • You cannot reconnect the Canvas assignment to the group.
  • If you continue to use the assignment, Flip creates a new group and topic to connect to the assignment.
  • Any videos that were posted previously are still in the group on Flip.

How to disconnect your group

Important: You can only disconnect a group from Canvas on Flip on web. There currently is no way to disconnect with the Flip app.
