Before proceeding with these steps, please inform your contact person or Pilot and Partner Manager at FeedbackFruits to ensure a smooth and safe process.

In this comprehensive guide, you will learn about the Admin Dashboard and how to set them up in Blackboard or Canvas (Instructure).

Admin Dashboards Introduction

An Admin Dashboard provides you with vital insights about your FeedbackFruits integration with your Learning Management System (LMS), enabling you to understand the usage and interaction of students, teachers, designers, and teaching assistants with the FeedbackFruits tooling. You will gain information about how much time users spend on the platform, the overall status of the system, and the integrations between your LMS and the platform.

For each metric, such as 'Courses' or 'Teachers', the dashboard displays the cumulative data at the center. Below that, the second number with the arrow pointing up indicates the usage increase in the past month.

(Fig. 1: Admin Dashboard displaying the usage and time spent with FeedbackFruits tooling.)

In addition, the Admin Dashboard is a powerful tool that, in the near future, will offer you the ability to control what features are being used and to configure them as needed.

This guide will provide you with step-by-step instructions to manually configure your Admin Dashboard for both the Blackboard and Canvas (Instructure). At the moment, we only support the integration of these two LMSs. However, if you are using Canvas (Instructure) inherited configurations, please contact our customer support team for assistance.
